▶️ Interview with Andrew Yang ◀️ Blockchain Advocate & Democratic Candidate 2020


Hey this is Steve Good on The Coin Chat
with my co-host Yuri Cataldo and today we are with a presidential candidate
who’s also a big fan of blockchain Andrew Yang. Andrew welcome to the show
it’s great to have you on. Thank you for having me both of you it’s a pleasure to
be here. Fantastic. Thank you for joining us. So I am joining from my home, I was joking with the guys its my kid’s room. Even presidential candidates
have to hide from their family sometimes. Don’t we all. I’m hiding behind a green screen here. I’m just glad I have a family to hide from. True! So I think it’s great to have
you on the show really you know thank you so much for taking the time out I
know you’re a busy guy you’re out you’ve got a lot of things to do to raise
awareness of your your presidential candidacy and generating all that
interest and you know I think for Yuri and I we just wanted to have a chance to talk with you and to help you raise a bit of awareness around your
campaign and kind of get to know a little bit about what you’re doing of
course from our perspective we’d love to hear a lot more about your interests in
your your view on blockchain and we’ve got some questions we’ve put together
for you, to just you know, to have an open discussion and just kind of hear
where it’s all going to go and what you see is happening. Well thank you
for that and thank you for sensing that we’re incredibly aligned where my vision
of the economy is very consistent with the people who are in the cryptocurrency
community and are working on blockchain advancements where we need to move
towards a more decentralized system for sure that’s more transparent and
blockchain you know it’s like many other technologies where it’s going to have
its drawbacks at various times but the long-term potential is staggering. And
really the reason I fell into so many friends in the community is
that I found that approximately 99% of people in the blockchain
community are pro Universal Basic Income which as you may know is the central
pillar of my campaign. Yes. So I arrived at that through the reality that we are
automating away millions of American jobs we’ve already automated away four million manufacturing jobs leading to
Donald Trump’s election in 2016 and now we need to start evolving and to me
moving toward the blockchain is part of that evolution so one of the things
we’re looking at right now is we could potentially enable voting on the
blockchain in a way that would free people up from these lines at poll
stations and all these systems that everyone’s like not even sure if they’re
getting attacked by the Russians and the rest of it. I was just at a
meeting of people who are looking to distribute universal basic income on the
blockchain which I think is where it will go eventually I’m also for the
implementation of a national digital currency to supplement the dollar
because there are many many things that we could do that the dollar cannot do so
this campaign really and one of the jokes I tell is that people sometimes
call me a futurist but I believe I’m a present-ist it’s just that most of the
politicians are stuck in the past because that’s just their experience. For
sure. For me I’ve been a serial entrepreneur I’ve worked in technology
for about 20 years and I know what’s possible so with people like you
hopefully we can spread that word to people around the country. So its an interesting point that you made least a couple of comments and
in this that I wanted to pick up on one was the transparency which as you
probably know with cryptocurrency when you get into privacy coins it creates
some interesting dilemmas especially for the IRS and for tax. The other thing that
I’m wondering about so I’m just gonna ask you these two things together is
that is that you know I’m based in London by the way Yuri’s based in Boston.
So as an outsider that spent most of my last two years in the crypto world as an
adviser to other companies what I’ve seen is a complete absence of the U.S.
being really present mostly because of regulation because of
the SEC and I’m just wondering if you have any particular views on how we can
open up the potential channels for allowing the U.S. to really thrive in a
cryptocurrency community or a crypto community a blockchain community when
there’s been so much that’s restricted America while we’ve seen China and Korea
and Japan and India and some parts of Europe just thrive,
Russia, thriving because you know technology and people have been able to
really get into it and I’ve seen the U.S. just kind of fall behind on some
respects. Do you have any you know thoughts on privacy and its impact on
tax and also how we can open up the channels to really open up the doors for
more innovation in crypto and blockchain for the U.S? You know I think
the second point is so key where people think of America is like the hotbed of
innovation and technology when in reality the American, certainly the
political system, is quite backward and retrograde and incredibly bureaucratic
and you can see it with the blockchain and other crypto currencies where the
U.S. is essentially throwing its hands up and been like you know don’t really
have an approach here and so as a result certainly there are many people in
America who are making use of crypto currencies but it’s a it’s not as
supported and there’s a lot more confusion in the u.s. because the place
is not as forward-looking. So I hope to be able to change that I mean as
President I believe I can start to move America forward and one of one of the
other jokes I tell is that the opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who
likes…his goal is to freeze time and turn the clock backwards and we need to
accelerate time and move it forwards and that includes certainly having a much
more intelligent approach to the blockchain and other technologies that
would really so I think the other thing that’s going on in the U.S. that’s very
painful to admit is that there’s just a lot of rent-seeking in the US and the
truth is if you had the blockchain and other technology as fully revved up then
you would end up disintermediating accounting firms and law firms and
financial institutions and those substitutions really control
much of the American system where no one wants to let anything out that’s going to
end up disrupting their revenue streams Interesting. Yuri over to you. So I…you’re one of the few presidential candidates who are accepting crypto
currencies on on your site which i think is amazing and you yourself have
mentioned on your website that campaign donors have to register and
also not to share your wallet address so that people can’t make untraceable
donations. I’d like to hear your thoughts on how this could eventually
maybe affect politics in the future because a lot of people who…A lot of people believe that when they hear Bitcoin or blockchain or crypto currencies they
think of launderers, your money launderers drug dealers and then dark
money so how would you approach this idea of getting cryptocurrencies
involved without that dark money aspect? Yeah and hopefully like even my campaign
can be an example of this where if it’s simply an exchange of value there’s
nothing sinister about it and certainly for us I joke that you could donate
chickens to my campaign as long as I knew that it was you and like you know
chickens are worth a certain amount. So you can’t just anonymously donate Ether or a
Bitcoin to our campaign from SEC rulings like you have to tell us who you are and
if we were to get something anonymous then unfortunately we couldn’t make use
of it so that would sort of defeat the purpose but hopefully my campaign can
shine a light on the fact that this is a great way to exchange value and
transfer value to another party and that you know my campaigns are already
collected thousands of dollars and cryptocurrency donations and we hope
that continues it’s something you know I’ve always
want to demonstrate I’m very very aligned with the values of the community
and so hopefully like you said like we can disabuse people of the notions that
like anything to do with cryptocurrency means you’re you know a drug dealer or
something. So you know the fact that you have the you know Bitcoin mentioned on
your website is interesting because one of the things
that we’ve seen running a YouTube show having website and all the rest is
because of the word cryptocurrency or Bitcoin anywhere through any of our
channels we can’t advertise anything and I’m
wondering do you have the same problems having a website that has we accept
Bitcoin causing you any problems with advertising and generally for all the
rest of us, if you’re not having any problems, if for the rest of us who are
struggling to just run any form of advertising on anything that we do
what’s your thought on that about how much we’re being blocked from talking
about what we’re doing and how we’re educating people in crypto or blockchain?
Well that’s really interesting I didn’t realize that because we haven’t had
those problems and it could be because we have one page that says Bitcoin and we have like hundreds of… Could be. But those restrictions are very interesting there
are you know, I’m scratching my head thinking like why those
restrictions exist that you know like I can imagine some rationale I’m sure that
whatever is being done is overly broad. Yeah I did a facebook live
video today. It was less than five minutes long and it was a quick explainer video
for people to just understand how does mining work why it’s not a Ponzi scheme
and what the mechanisms are for using computers to mine and to verify
transactions like the way a bank does. That was it. Our marketing team attempted
to go ahead and just you know promote it on Facebook to make it more widely seen.
Blocked. Not allowed. We have not been able to advertise anything on our
channels across Twitter, Instagram Facebook, YouTube. Same companies
again and again here it’s Facebook its Twitter its Google and I’m just wondering you know at what point do we kind of open
this up a little bit so that you know we have to draw a line somewhere but you
know it just seems to me that… I mean like one that surprises me
but two it shows just how much clout and distribution power is concentrating in the
hands of a handful of platforms. Yes. And in a way what it does it highlights the rationale
for the blockchain and Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to begin with which is
that you’re trying to like create a more decentralized you know system that
doesn’t rely upon like five institutions or one institution or one
government or whatever it is. That’s right. …to approve. So in a way this is
like you know proof positive of the rationale for the importance of your
work it’s unfortunate that we unfortunately are beholden to a handful
of tech platforms to get the word out and certainly as the presidential
candidate I mean I’ve got a social media team and we’re like you know Instagram
living and the rest of it so I get it and if you’re not on these platforms and
it’s like you don’t exist so you know so entrepreneurs out there in a way what we
need is we need some more decentralized social media platforms though I don’t
know how you do that because of the fact that ubiquity in that context obviously
ends up driving utility. There’s definitely a number of them on the way
I’ve come across a few of them myself and there’s a range of things that
they’re trying to do to create a decentralized environment for social
media and they run into similar problems around mostly around privacy because
they don’t want to hold the data but in order for their systems to actually be
smart enough for provisioning the data they run into problems of do we
hold the data or do we allow the users to control the data and it’s an
interesting problem because you know we’ve seen what the Cambridge
Analytics problem did to Facebook and so what I see is a lot of these blockchain
projects that don’t want to go down that path and yet are confronted with
sometimes they need some of the data and they’re trying to figure out what the
line is where the balance is so they’re not seen is doing exactly what nobody
wants. Thats so interesting. I want to tell you guys a joke that I told at this blockchain event that I spoke at earlier this week Which was someone asked the question why is Bitcoin worth $7,000? And then the response was why is $7,000 worth $7,000? But you know
it’s because what you’re describing really is you know and it took me a
little while to get it it took me a little while to understand the ethos of
what was possible and what the community is driving towards but I’m convinced
that we need to move in that direction as fast as possible that we need to
replace this mindset of resource scarcity that is taking over certainly
the U.S. in a very dark way and replace it with a mindset of abundance and future
orientation and and what is still possible and that the fact that you know
we can build a very different kind of society very quickly but we need to get
our acts together and this is one of the things I told that Bitcoin
folks to so I’m running for president you know and some people probably many
of the people listening to this right now well they think themselves wow this
guy seems sort of interesting but the but is there’s no way he can win. Something along those lines. We’ve heard that before haven’t we? Yes so I’m heading to Iowa for the 8th time next week and what
I boil it down to for people is like I’m an Asian guy and Asians are really good at
tests. And so it so the question is like what is the test to become President
United States? And it turns out there’s all of this like media noise and like
endorsements there’s really only one maybe two tests involved. Can you win the
caucus in Iowa and can you win the primary in New Hampshire in February
2020. Now I’m just going to break this down for people listening
because the you know it makes people realize what’s possible. So Iowa is a
state of 3.1 million people but only 5.6% of them participated in the
Democratic caucus last time a hundred seventy-one thousand out of 3.1 million.
So let’s let’s make that number 200,000 how many people do we think are
going to run for president as a Democrat this cycle? a few dozen 20? 30? Yes so if let’s say
you have 20 to 30 candidates and you have 200,000 votes
how many Iowans do I need to get on my side saying we should get $1,000 a month
dividend in order for me to finish the top three in 2020 maybe 25 to 30,000
Iowans. Yeah Yeah top three so when people go through all this and say like
hey you know a longshot candidate blah blah blah none of it matters if we can
get 30,000 Iowans on board with the idea that them getting $1,000 a month’s a good idea and when I go to Iowa I’m already polling. I’m already
tied with Kirsten Gillibrand in Iowa of last year because I go to Iowa
and I ask people have you noticed stories closing and you’re in your towns
and they say yes and then I say why is that and then they say Amazon and I’m
like that’s right and what are you gonna do about it and then they look at me
they’re like I can do something about it and I was like well if you make me
president I’m gonna bring them back at the house and dollars a month to you and
you can rebuild your Main Street economy and give your kids a reason to stay and
that gets 20% of them thinking yeah like about the only thing we can do. So I’m just presenting this as like
vision as to how change is possible much much faster than people think.
Sure. Yeah so while you’re in Iowa cuz that’s interesting the the idea of a
universal basic income is something I know that’s been floated before but a
lot of people are hesitant about it. What are some of the strategies you’re using
to talk to Iowans about why it’s important to do this? Well I talked to them about
the fact that Trump’s our president because we got rid of 4 million
manufacturing jobs including 40,000 in Iowa so they saw that happen and then you say hey what happened the manufacturing jobs we’re about to do
to your retail jobs, your call center jobs, your food service jobs, your truck
driving jobs, all of which are huge employment categories in Iowa and and so
then I say look it may seem far out or socialist to you
but if you look at our history Thomas Paine was for it Martin Luther King was
for it Richard Nixon was for it Milton Friedman was for it a thousand
economists were for it and it’s been law in one state Alaska for the last 37
years where everyone in that state gets between one and two thousand dollars a
year and they look at me and they’re like that happens? Yeah you can move to Alaska you get that money too. They pay for it with oil and then I asked them what is the oil of the 21st century and
then they scratch their head for a second and then someone says
technology and I’m like that’s right what we did for Alaska with oil we can
do for you and the rest the country with technology. And isn’t Norway already
doing something like this anyway because Norway is like a massive oil-producing
country and the citizens have like a really really light nice life there I
mean I I don’t know exactly what they’re doing but I know that there’s some sort
of system that enables them to all have a very comfortable life because of the
amount of oil that’s government money. Yeah the Nordic countries northern
European countries like Denmark they either have incredibly robust social
safety nets or something close to the equivalent of a universal basic income
right now. Right. But as you can imagine in the U.S. certainly Alaska is
a much more you know like relevant example for that because and also Alaska
is like a deep red conservative state so then it makes them think like this is
not somehow some like far left Socialist. God forbid a Democrat should be
supporting what’s happening in a Republican state. Yeah someone called me the shuffler. We’d like to see that live!
Yeah and like libertarians are coming out for me many Trump voters are coming
up to me and saying I voted for Donald Trump I’ll vote for you because you’re
an outsider you want to shake things up you’re talking about the same problems
he was talking about but your real solutions. Interesting you stated on your
website that Americans should be able to vote via their mobile phones of
verification done by a blockchain how would you sell that to the older
generation of American people and calm their fears about being hacked or issues
with using some new technology and you know to kind of you know
lower their fears considering some of the noise we heard from the last
election. Yeah so the truth is that any voting system you’re gonna have you’re
gonna be working with legacy systems and the paper backup for some period of time
so to me the the big move we have to start making is we have to start making
it so you have multi-modal voting where people who are comfortable voting on
their smartphone just like beep-boop done. And then if you’re an old
person you want to wait in line like be our guest but you pretty much need to
keep them both around for a little while because the other thing is that people
would be concerned about not having some kind of hard hard copy back. Sure.
So this is this has been absolutely fantastic chatting with you so far if
the cryptocurrency community would like to get behind what you’re working
on or find out more of that how can they best work with you and
support you and and get the word out about what you’re doing? well thanks so much for asking. Just go to yang2020.com
you get a sense of our platform if you do have some cryptocurrency around that
you’d like to donate to the campaign just go to yang2020.com/crypto
and then you can make a donation there we could certainly use your help those
of you who like to create memes I really want to become the Internet candidate.
Are you doing any… any kind of meme competitions on
Instagram or Twitter at all? We’re doing some stuff like that but we’re not as
far along we haven’t caught really like the right set of memes as yet but my
team super optimistic about it because apparently I’m more meme-able than many
of the other candidates. What does that mean? you know I mean one thing is like there’s like the Drake
gods playing video where he’s just giving money to people and there’s like
sticking my head on it I’m actually giving $1,000 a month
personally to a family in New Hampshire that got picked up by CNBC and the rest
of it just to illustrate shocker $1,000 a month will actually help people’s
lives. Yeah. So I’m like here’s $1,000 a month. The people are like you know is that
allowed and I’m like apparently. We checked with the SEC it is allowed. and and and it was so inspiring that a
couple in Georgia said that they’re gonna donate $1,000 a month to another
family in South Carolina just to support my campaign just to show giving people
money would actually improve people’s lives. Amazing. I know there…yeah it’s
incredible! Like we can really start a movement here that helps open people’s
eyes to the fact that value can be distributed very very very differently
and that this can be a world of abundance instead of a world of resource
scarcity and a dog-eat-dog. Yeah well we certainly talk about scarcity versus
abundance that’s something that Yuri and I are both learned a lot about and we
talk about because we know how important it is that when you’re trying to
fundraise for a project or raise money as a company and be successful that you
want to create that feeling of abundance and that there’s the ability to make
things happen rather than being held back because something getting in the
way so we talk about that all the time because it’s a fundamental thing to run
a business or to be successful. Yeah guys I’m a serial entrepreneur, before this I started an organization called Venture for America
that trained hundreds of entrepreneurs and created thousands of jobs in the
Midwest and South that’s why I know what’s going on in the Midwest and South. Thats one reason why I vibe so well with your community is that you all are so entrepreneurial and
future-oriented and have that mindset of abundance that’s necessary to make
any of these positive things happen and its one of the things I try and explain to
people it’s like look if you want people to be entrepreneurial you can’t have
them living paycheck to paycheck and freaking out about paying their bills
every day right now that’s not going to lead to business formation and
creativity whereas if you get people’s heads up and start thinking hey if I
build this then I could make it better and I can get the resources and like
we’ve got a great idea so that’s one reason why I love the work you all do in
your community so much because we need to create that mindset in people all
around really all around the world yeah well I was working in big corporate
world you know and I left it to do crypto and I’ve been independent now for
the last two-and-a-half years just working helping companies advising them
with strategy helping them figure out where they’re going with their product
roadmaps and all that kind of stuff and it’s it’s
an interesting place to live being you know truly entrepreneurial on my own and
we’re gonna get Yuri to do the same soon too right Yuri? That’s right. I gotta say it’s the
best thing you’ll ever do it’s the hardest thing you’ll ever do it’s like
the most growth inducing thing you’ll ever do yeah you know so it’s all of
those things but it helps it helps elevate the human experience in my view. So just for a moment I mean we’re talking blockchain what we’re
gonna do I just want to ask a question because we’re here talking about the you
know the universal basic income premise how do you fund it because one of the
things I listen to one of the podcasts that you were on and it sounded like you
were talking about and maybe I got this wrong but you were talking about you
know the big conglomerates like an Amazon that’s taking jobs away and now
you might want to perhaps tax them more or create a VAT tax but what I’m thinking
about is how does that work so that it doesn’t damage the growth of these
potential companies have and at the same time enable a level playing
field for everybody to actually get the universal basic income without it
affecting them affecting the companies around them? Yeah so the VAT I’m
recommending is half the European level which would not meaningfully affect the
incentives for automation and innovation and I talked to techies and
entrepreneurs and they actually say like that’s a much better approach than if
you would actually for example tax AI or tax like specific things so
they’re like that’s more of like a gentle redistribution and if you look at
it every advanced economy already has one except for the United States. Right.
We have sales tax in the US versus a VAT so would you still retain
the local sales tax on each state and then put a national VAT on top of
all sales? Yeah I mean as you say the state tax is very much a state-by-state
decision some have it, some don’t but keep in mind that all of the money is
going straight in the hands of American consumers and it’s gonna go right back
into like the hands of businesses around the country including like the Amazons
of the world so when I talk to CEOs they find this plan to be much much more
amicable than some of the other things that are being bandied. Interesting.
Guys I’ve got a run but thank you for the work work that you do
anyone who to follow up with any of this please do
does Google Andrew yang or go to yang2020.com and let’s build a future that
we can be proud of together so keep it up thank you guys so much.
Thank you thank you for coming on the show and we’ll look forward to seeing you for
perhaps a live episode at one of the caucuses if you’d like. Oh yeah it’d be a lot of fun. Just head to Iowa or New Hampshire. I’ll me there. Thank you hey
thank you very much for joining us hey and thanks everybody for joining us
today on the The Coin Chat with Andrew Yang who is running for President and
also a big advocate of blockchain To the Moon! Until next time.

    Andrew Yang is wrong.

    We didnt automate away 4 million manufacturing jobs.

    Economists have been misreading the statistics.

    https://qz.com/1269172/the-epic-mistake-about-manufacturing-thats-cost-americans-millions-of-jobs/

    Yang is not a serial entrepreneur, which is by definition an entrepreneur who continuously comes up with new ideas and starts new businesses.

    Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which is often initially a small business.

    The people who create these businesses are called entrepreneurs.

    Yang has personally created two businesses.

    2.

    Stargiving.com and Venture for America.

    Yang is a typical entrepreneur, who has twice come up with an idea, started a company, then seen it through and played an important role in the day-to-day functioning of said company.

    The rest of the time Yang was an employee.

    EMPLOYEE:
    1999 corporate attorney at Davis Polk & Wardwell.

    ENTREPRENEUR:
    2000 launches a start-up Stargiving.com, which folded in 2001. 

    EMPLOYEE:
    Yang joined a healthcare software startup MMF Systems, Inc., as its Vice President and third hire.

    EMPLOYEE:
    2005 joined friend Zeke Vanderhoek at a small test preparation company, Manhattan Prep.

    EMPLOYEE:
    2006 becomes CEO of Manhattan Prep.
    2009 Manhattan prep acquired by Kaplan.

    ENTREPRENEUR:
    2011 Founded Venture for America.
    2017 Stepped down as CEO.

    November 6, 2017, Yang filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to run for President of the United States in 2020.

    So in all honesty Yang has 12 years of entrepreneurial experience spread over two companies, one of which was a failure.

    In contrast a serial killer is typically a person who murders three or more people.

    Yang.  You just need to start one more business to earn the bragging rights of Serial Entrepreneur.

    Untill then give it up.

    Yang believes that America needs asian leadership.

    He tells us that Asians see things differently.

    Yang reminds us that he is the first Asian American to run for president.

    Yang tells us that he lives in fear of the white majority. He thinks that Asians are one generation away from being sent to camps or shot at by angry whites.

    Yang reveals that Asians have their own vision for America's future.

    "If asians wait their turn we will never get there." Yang believes that America does not care about Asians.

    Yang suggests that America has set limits on how successful asians can become.

    Yang tells us he has spent time with non asian politicians and "they are certainly no better than we are".

    "We are going to make the White House the Gold House."

    PARAPHRASED……..

    "We Chinese need to take political control of this country before white people turn on us."

  4. Great to have a forward thinking politician who gets blockchain. He will bring greater awareness of blockchain to people who don't know about it. 🙂

  5. He is sooo intouch with Americans, Republicans or Democrats or Martians it doesnt matter, he starts from the human level up but then heads towards future, not backwards, HE IS THE BEST, THE REAL, THE MOST INTELLIGENT CANDIDATE, ANTI ESTABLISHMENT- OUTTHERE AND IF HE DOESNT WIN WE ARE SOOOO GONNA BE STUCK IN OBAMA & TRUMP ERA…and WE ALL KNOW BOTH DONT WORK FOR ALLL AMERICANS, HE JUST NEEDS 8 YEARS HE CAN CHANGE THINGS FOR REAL GOOD FOREVER FOR AMERICANS STRONG !!LETS VOTE FOR HIM

  6. His biggest challenge is going to convince people he's not "just another socialist who wants to take my money." I saw him on a fox news interview and despite his explanation, the comments section was filled with "Here we go again. Another communist scumbag"

  7. If you like what Andrew saying please donate to his campaign even $1 helps because he needs 65,000 unique donations in order to get on the Democratic stage for debates

  8. Guys we need to donate for him, otherwise he wont get to the debates, a $1 is all you need to give, he needs 65000 votes and is currently at 38000, lets make this happen, your $1 will give you back $1000s in coming years. Its time to have a really smart, young, educated enterprenuer as the President who takes us to the future.

  9. Mr. Yang needs a total of 65,000 individual donors by May 15th, 2019 in order to take part in the debates. Please give a buck!

  10. “Why is bitcoin worth 7 thousand dollars?”
    “Why is 7 thousand dollars worth 7 thousand dollars?” – Yang

    I fuckin love it!!

  11. i am a 55 year old hvac tech (google please) and i am moving 300 miles for a new job. i leaving kansas city mo to little town in kansas. i am looking forward to it. yang is right on all the points i heard from him and he is always consistent on his message which i have not heard from anyone else trying to be my president. how can i support anyone else other than yang. last thing he is always positive which i have never seen this in a politician. biden's first message was not what we need to do but who to hate.

  12. Social Compliance Points.
    1. Who decides what activities deserve points.
    2. What are the points used for?

  13. Thanks for covering Andrew Yang. Just got me to subscribe! You should get him back on the show!

  14. Humanity First Yang 2020
    There are 3 massive problems facing humanity. 1) global nuclear war. 2) global climate change. 3) automation and AI.
    by combining Tulsi gabbard and Andrew Yang we stand a good chance of addressing and possibly fixing these problems.

  15. I like the UBI for all, but seniors should not be made to choose between UBI and their soc. security…soc. security is not welfare benefits, ..seniors work all their life and pay into a sort of pension plan and the govt. promise to give you SS ..so if millionaire bill gates is given UBI, so should all seniors …without conditions and certainly not forced to choose between UBI and SSecurity— does yang know that SS uis not welfare ?

  16. Andrew Yang has my support. I have never ever donated to a campaign and I have donated to Andrew Yang's 3 times already, and will continue. He is intelligent, an experienced leader, eloquent and highly capable. He has the vision and methods to lead us Americans into a brighter, stronger future. Lets put our best foot forward with our future in mind, no personal agendas and do what's right for all of America. Give everyone the rights that most developed countries enjoy and have. Andrew Yang is the real deal. Vote for Andrew Yang!

  17. I've yet to meet (not saying it doesn't exist lol) a dumb person that understands the value and intricacies of bitcoin. If the bitcoin community get's behind him in a meaningful way than they will end up with a leader that understands their own values and needs for the future.

  18. Andrew Yang is the only candidate who can see America's problems and knows how to solve them. Do yourselves a favour. Make Andrew Yang your president. Universal basic income will be adopted around the world in time.

  21. UBI_10 Some Quick Sample UBI to Reparation Comparisons.

    Money by itself cannot offset our nation's founding sins in the genocide of native Americans, in the slavery of African Americans, in the institutional discriminations against a myriad of minorities. But money can smooth the way to help deliver atonement for national sins, can provide a reckoning of acknowledgment, contriteness, apology, and remorse, and money can help be part of the delivery of closure.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., advocated for a universal guaranteed income (UBI) for all Americans for fighting poverty.

    A. Amount Americans Will Get From Andrew Yang's Freedom Dividend

    B. Amount of Reparations Previously Calculated for Descendants of Slavery

    • YANG'S Freedom Dividend is $1,000 a month is to all U.S. citizens over 18. It is Inflation adjusted.

    • $768,000 is what an 18 year old man gets ($12K x +64 years of 82 year life expectancy).

    • $840,000 is what an 18 year old woman gets ($12K x +70 years of 88 years life expectancy).

    • It is stacked on top of social security retirement income, veteran's disability income and SSDI.

    CALCULATIONS AS TO $ AMOUNT OF REPARATIONS

    • 40 acres and a mule. 1865, Gen. William T. Sherman.

    – Sherman drew up his order after posing this directive to a group of black ministers and leaders: “State in what manner you think you can take care of yourselves.”

    – President Abraham Lincoln and Congress gave their approval, and soon 40,000 freedmen in the South had started to plant and build.

    – Within months of Lincoln’s assassination, though, President Johnson rescinded the order and returned the land to its former owners. Congress made another attempt at compensation, but Johnson vetoed it.

    – This was a US Government promise, the contract, a treaty ratified by President Lincoln and Congress, detrimentally relied on (accepted), but subsequently unilaterally broken when revoked by President Johnson.

    – The US Government needs to make good on its broken promise, broken contract, broken treaty.

    • $500 billion, or $16,700 a person, according to Mr. Swinton, who, estimated in 1983 that 40 to 60 percent of the difference between black and white income could be attributed to past and continuing discrimination, and put the figure at $500 billion to 30 million descendants of slaves.

    – This is equal to 1.4 YEARS of UBI Freedom Dividends a person.

    • $2.6 trillion dollars or $80,000 a person to 30 million descendants of slaves, per Mr. Darity from the '40 acres and a mule.' He begins with the cost of an acre in 1865: about $10. Forty acres divided among a family of four comes to 10 acres per person, or about $100 for each of the four million former slaves. Taking account of compounding interest and inflation, Mr. Darity has put the present value at $2.6 trillion. Assuming roughly 30 million descendants of ex-slaves, he concluded it worked out to about $80,000 a person.

    – This is equal to 6.7 YEARS of UBI Freedom Dividends a person.

    • $486 billion dollars or $16,200 a person to descendants of salves, according to Prof Thomas Craemer, from the 40 acres and a mule. He used the current average price of agricultural land and figured that 40 acres of farmland and buildings would amount to roughly $123,000. If all of the four million slaves counted in the 1860 census had been able to take advantage of that offer, it would have totaled more than $486 billion today — or about $16,200 for each descendant of slaves.

    – This is equal to 1.35 YEARS of UBI Freedom Dividends a person.

    WHAT FORM WOULD PAYMENT TAKE?

    • Compensation programs can take many forms. In the United States, after a congressional study, people of Japanese descent who were forced into internment camps during World War II received $20,000 in 1988 and a formal apology.

    • Since 1952, Germany has paid more than $70 billion in reparations through various programs, primarily to Jewish victims of the Nazi regime, and continues to deliver hundreds of millions of dollars each year. Payments vary from a lump sum distributed to individuals to a monthly pension based on years working in a slave labor camp. Money is also given to organizations to cover home care for older survivors or for grants. A small portion goes for research, education and documentation.

    • According to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, the median wealth of black households is $16,000, compared with $163,000 for whites. Reparations are not likely to eliminate the racial wealth gap, but could narrow it somewhat. Low-income families, with the fewest assets, would benefit the most. The wealth differential of $147,000 is equal to 12.25 years of Freedom Dividend.

    Martin Luther King Jr. in advocating for a Guaranteed Basic Income (UBI) said,

    "We are likely to find that the problems of housing and education, instead of proceeding the elimination of poverty, will themselves be affected if poverty is first abolished. The poor transformed into purchasers will do a great deal on their own to alter housing decay. Negroes, who have a double disability, will have a greater effect on discrimination when they have the additional weapon of cash to use in their struggle.

      "Beyond these advantages, a host of positive psychological changes inevitably will result from widespread economic security. The dignity of the individual will flourish when the decisions concerning his life are in his own hands, when he has the assurance that his income is stable and certain, and when he knows that he has the means to seek self-improvement. Personal conflicts between husband, wife and children will diminish when the unjust measurement of human worth on a scale of dollars is eliminated."

  22. How did you get this?! My only advice to this genius, use the headphone mic when doing webcam interviews, Andrew’s sound was very quiet, otherwise very productive conversation and new things coming from him on many topics. Great job guys. MATH, Yang 2020, Humanity First.
