Christopher Pissarides, Nobel Prize in Economics

agrees Basic Income
I am very much in favour, as long as we know how to apply it without taking away incentive to work at the lower end of the market

Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry and president of the Royal Society

I am very happy eating transgenic maize. Genetically modified foods can make a difference: adapted to drought or more nutrients in a crop such as Golden Rice, in which precursors of vitamin A are introduced and can help prevent childhood blindness.

Paul Krugman, Economist (nobel laureate) and NY Times columnist

agrees Carbon Tax
Emissions taxes are the Economics 101 solution to pollution problems; every economist I know would start cheering wildly if Congress voted in a clean, across-the-board carbon tax.

Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel laureate economist based at Columbia University

disagrees Basic Income
You want your government to think more carefully about targeting programmes that help those in need, rather than universal. That’s a trade-off given the budget constraints on the public sector

Frank Wilczek, Physicist, MIT and Recipient, 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics

Without careful restraint and tact, researchers could wake up to discover they've enabled the creation of armies of powerful, clever, vicious paranoiacs

Oliver Hart, Nobel Prize winner in Economics and Professor at Harvard

Bill Gates would get 13K, which is crazy. Raising taxes is costly and so redistribution should be targeted to those who need help most.

Eric Maskin, Nobel laureate in economics

A minimum income makes sense, but not at the cost of eliminating Social Security and Meidcare.

Robert J Shiller, Professor of economics at Yale and Nobel laureate

agrees Robot Tax
A moderate tax on robots, even a temporary tax that merely slows the adoption of disruptive technology, seems a natural component of a policy to address rising inequality. Revenue could be targeted towards wage insurance, to help people replaced by new technology make the transition to a different career. This would accord with our natural sense of justice, and thus be likely to endure.

Quitting EU would harm British science

Randy W. Schekman, Nobel Prize winner in medicine

I find it surprising that groups that are very supportive of science when it comes to global climate change, or even, for the most part, in the appreciation of the value of vaccination in preventing human disease, yet can be so dismissive of the general views of scientists when it comes to something as important as the world’s agricultural future.

Martin Chalfie, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry

I’m not so sure we’re any more special than other scientists who have looked at the evidence involved, but we have considerably more visibility because of the prize. I think that this behooves us, that when we feel that science is not being listened to, that we speak out.

disagrees Cryptocurrencies
[Governments will] regulate it out of existence.

Sir Richard Roberts, Nobel Prize winner in medicine

In our letter we call upon Greenpeace and like organizations to end their shameful campaign of propaganda and criminal destruction of crops improved by modern genetic technologies, such as GMOs.
