Basic income is commonly seen as a key contributor to raising our control over time. Basic income analysis, however, has tended to oversimplify this impact by focusing too exclusively on the agency aspect of freedom and on one institution – the basic income reform. In response, this article applies a multi-institutional and developmental lens to the problem of control over time. The multi-institutional framework of social insurance in social democracies is shown to reduce inequalities of access to more forms of stability and, on this basis, to constitute a preferred welfare state context for a basic income reform.
