Quote of the day, yay!

"We prefer restitution to wages and gratitude. A guaranteed income provides for a monetary means that is a necessary but not sufficient condition. Restitution—giving back—is a material-symbolic circuit, a reproductive circuit of a worthy life, which cannot be exhausted in the possibility of paying for what is necessary to survive. Being part of a circuit of restitution means accessing, using, and multiplying the conditions of living. Do I want a wage or everything that is necessary for a joyful existence?"

-- Federica Giardini and Anna Simone, "Reproduction as Paradigm: Elements for a Feminist Political Economy", trans. Dave Mesing, Viewpoint Magazine, 31 October 2015.
