Abstract:     
There are strong Lockean considerations that count in favor of a global basic income program. This paper articulates a conception of equal share left-libertarianism that is supported by the rights of full self-ownership and world-ownership. It is argued that an appropriately constructed basic income program would be a key institution for promoting the rights of full self-ownership and world-ownership.
