In this article we consider the potential of a Basic Income (BI) as a  mechanism for promoting well-integrated and autonomous social and  productive development in newly independent Democratic Republic of East  Timor, and for expanding the freedom of this country’s population that  is struggling to throw off the bitter legacy of colonial and  postcolonial dispossession and violence. We briefly outline the main  social and economic problems faced by the new Democratic Republic of  East Timor. Then we argue that a BI financed by oil and natural gas  revenues could play a major role in combating these problems.
