Johnbosco Nwogbo is studying toward a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Sussex, England. He is interested in ideas that would improve the material lives of impoverished peoples, which is why he is drawn to the idea of the Universal Basic Income. He is also interested in the influence of money (or economic means) in democracies, and decries the virtual absence of any serious engagement with such influence in most mainstream philosophical theories of democracy, from Rawls through Wiredu, to Mouffe.
