Being a Derivatives Trader in the financial crisis 2008, Helmo’s liberal worldview of “give much, get much” collapsed. Having his mind changed profoundly, Helmo is deeply convinced that humans cannot be bought or sold nor can their workforce (!) without their will.
Change forms a new thinking from hard hitting banker to Basic Income Activist. Currently, Helmo leads the debate in Austria on the question if implementing a full UBI should be proposed. His passion lies in asking the questions that evoke doubt, and in the eagerness to find new answers in his fellow citizens – to change their minds as well, and consequently drive political change as well.
