Andrew Yang on Budget & Economy

 

 


Freedom Dividend of $1000/month for every adult American

Yang's proposal would provide every American over 18 years old with $1,000 per month. He contends that this would grow the economy by 13 percent and increase the labor force by 4.5-5 million people. Stems from his belief that AI and automation will wipe out millions of jobs and is the path to avoiding economic ruin. He says he rebranded to "Freedom Dividend" because it tests better with conservatives.

Measure standard of living instead of GDP

Yang supports changing how the U.S. measures economic success, by moving away from traditional benchmarks like GDP growth and the stock market and focusing instead on the country's standard of living, life expectancy and other metrics. He would also develop a new U.S. currency called a "Digital Social Credit" that could be exchanged for real dollars.
