IamA Andrew Yang, Candidate for President of the U.S. in 2020 on Universal Basic Income AMA!
Hi Reddit. I am Andrew Yang, Democratic candidate for President of the United States in 2020. I am running on a platform of the Freedom Dividend, a Universal Basic Income of $1,000 a month to every American adult age 18-64. I believe this is necessary because technology will soon automate away millions of American jobs - indeed this has already begun.
My new book, The War on Normal People, comes out on April 3rd and details both my findings and solutions.
Thank you for joining! I will start taking questions at 12:00 pm EST
