The Weeds: We know how to eliminate poverty. So why don't we?

On this week's episode of The Weeds, fellow Vox editor Dylan Matthews joins Matt Yglesias and me for what is certainly the most in-depth discussion of basic income ever broadcast. Would it really work to just give all Americans a base salary, regardless of whether they were employed? Also on this episode: a recap of the best policy tussles in the Republican debate and a fascinating white paper on why colleges don't punish cheaters — even when they get caught.
