STUPIDITY IS NOT THE PROBLEM is a spoken word piece with music by Jimmy Andrex. Its aim is to promote non-partisan debate about poverty, economic inequality and possible solutions. It is based on UTOPIA FOR REALISTS by Dutch historian and author Rutger Bregman, and one of its central ideas is the proposal to address poverty by some sort of Universal Income. As Bregman puts it:

Poverty is not a lack of character, it is a lack of cash.

However, his ideas go much further than that and ultimately try to get to the heart of how we see the world and asks us what sort of world would we like to see.

STUPIDITY IS NOT THE PROBLEM involves the piece itself followed by a panel debate around the ideas and questions it raises.
