Below, is the description of Yang’s new book at penguinrandomhouse.com, on Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy, in italics:
A lively and bold blueprint for moving beyond the “era of institutional failure” by transforming our outmoded political and economic systems to be resilient to twenty-first-century problems, from the popular entrepreneur, bestselling author, and political truth-teller
“A vitally important book.”—Mark Cuban Despite being written off by the media, Andrew Yang’s shoestring 2020 presidential campaign—powered by his proposal for a universal basic income of $1,000 a month for all Americans—jolted the political establishment, growing into a massive, diverse movement. Now, in Forward, Yang reveals that UBI and the threat of job automation are only the beginning, diagnosing how a series of cascading problems within our antiquated systems keeps us stuck in the past—imperiling our democracy at every level. With America’s stagnant institutions failing to keep pace with technological change, we grow more polarized as tech platforms supplant our will while feasting on our data. Yang introduces us to the various “priests of the decline” of America, including politicians whose incentives have become divorced from the people they supposedly serve. The machinery of American democracy is failing, Yang argues, and we need bold new ideas to rewire it for twenty-first-century problems. Inspired by his experience running for office and as an entrepreneur, and by ideas drawn from leading thinkers, Yang offers a series of solutions, including data rights, ranked-choice voting, and fact-based governance empowered by modern technology, writing that “there is no cavalry”—it’s up to us. This is a powerful and urgent warning that we must step back from the brink and plot a new way forward for our democracy.

“Yang does not just give us a list of intractable problems, but shows how we can find solutions if we think in new ways and summon the courage to do so.” -Kara Swisher

Andrew Yang isn’t a politician. He’s an entrepreneur who knows how the economy works—and he’s terrified about the growing automation of American jobs. That’s why he’s running for President as a Democrat in 2020. America has lost its direction, and it’s time we put humanity first. Andrew wants to get America back on track—to be a nation of opportunity, freedom, equality, and abundance. It all starts with the Freedom Dividend or Universal Basic Income, $1,000/month for every American adult over the age 18, no strings attached, in the video published on April 9, 2019, below. Andrew Yang teams up with Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig and Equal Citizens for a town hall to discuss their organization’s mission of campaign finance reform, ranked-choice voting, preventing voter suppression and gerrymandering, and re-examining our outdated winner-take-all Electoral College system, in the video published on April 9, 2019, “Restoring Democracy | Andrew Yang Town Hall with Lawrence Lessig“, below:
