Couple Times by technology over the last few months is crazy as good as things are you missed that record button or don't download time or whatever you lose everything down agree. So yeah, recording it's great to be here. Christiane goes podcast. We've been talking about this for a long time. Yeah. I'm sorry it took. So long the campaign trail was bananas and a at some point my team started yelling at me about. About About doing without them knowing it sounds like. Started happening you know in a more controlled manner. Well, it's funny because we we got got to know each other in the the twenty twenty way we started DM each other twitter. Let's you become friends with somebody nowadays. Yeah I. Made a Lotta Friends this way Chris is cool as you or maybe people tied with you perhaps, but may not was a huge fan of yours. So, connecting with your line was a real pleasure. But I I'm I grew up wrestling fan I remember your debut in wwe and like you know everything you've accomplished and it's been awesome because you accomplished it through pure talent merit hard work. You were the the cream rising to the top in my mind. Well, I mean, we kind of have similar tales the fact that you at one point where in the running, and now you're actually on the cabinet with Biden to help him with his. His campaign. How was it for you to get even to this level because I mean politics is I'm assuming kind of a lot like wrestling. There's a million people that want to do it but only very few that get to that certain point the there was more in common than I realized Chris. I actually think I appeal to people of every political background because I was talking about problems that in my mind have nothing to do with politics like the you know the robot trucks don't care what the truck driver thinks. Is the problem. And it was a really fascinating experience Chris where I'm an entrepreneur background and I looked into running for president before declaring and I thought I had a sense as to what the process would look like. But you never really know until you do it just like I'm sure if there was a kid out there who wants to become a professional wrestler think they know what it's like and then they get into the life and they're like, this is not quite what I I thought. It was it's better in some ways it's worse than. Others I think the way that the imagine I think the way it was better for me and I think a lot of performance can appreciate. This is just the amount of energy and love and gratitude you experience the trail when like you go in there are people that really believe in new and support you. You know I know for performers. That's like a really profound experience when you need fans who you mean a lot to, and then you realize like, wow, people actually believe in me and care about what I'm doing. Well, I mean. I guess just to go back to the question. To, get to be part of the original. Debates of eight candidates and all this other stuff how do you how do you throw your hats into the ring and say I want to run to be you know the Democrat representative for the President of the United States? Like how does that? How does that process all work? I'd love to pack this Chris because maybe I can inspire someone to run a absolutely yeah and I've been on record. Now saying I think that professional wrestler or former professional wrestler is going to wind up like a serious presidential candidate at some point. Out because the parallels really are really really high. So the rules are running for president. Basic where the only rules are that you have to be a natural born citizen and thirty five years or older which applies to just about everyone if you think about it, right you can run for president. Sure. So so then the real rules kick in when it comes to raising money and getting attention because you need to raise millions and millions of dollars for anyone to take at all seriously and thanks to folks getting behind me and my campaign we ended up raising enough to compete. We raised about forty million dollars all from small donors really this like from individuals who? Wanted to improve our way of life. So if you raise enough money, I guess attention, then the media will start covering you and in my case I came up through podcasts. It's one reason why I'm happy to join you here today that if not for podcasts I never would have gotten the support. I. Needed to get on that stage the the first debate stage threshold was sixty, five thousand donors and one percent in three polls. So that was the goal and as soon as they go Chris I was like, all right. Let's go against sixty, five, thousand donors. I mean, the toughest thing about the polls was actually getting on the poll in other words like having the pollster put Andrew Yang as an option was actually like the biggest concern. But then after we got listed I thought we could get one percent and we did that's amazing. So I had that before when. We're talking with the Chris Jericho cruise. They said, we want to get ten thousand people to sign up for this. Information List. Would you be interested type thing I said, how how many do you need? We need we need ten, thousand, fifteen, thousand and one since the deadline week and a half from now and do end up getting fourteen, thousand, nine hundred and they're like stop it. Got It. Got It like if you need this number all find the people because I know they're out there. So I'm assuming that's kind of the same way that you your attitude was yeah. The the measurements were super helpful because if you have a goal you feel confident you can hit it. And that was our experience now, not to say, that's an easy thing getting fourteen thousand people to sign up for something or sixty, five, thousand people like you need to be doing something that people are excited about. But the the debate thresholds were incredibly helpful to me. No doubt about it and we took full advantage. We you surprised at how How big? Popular? viable. Your candidacy was because right off the bat. You're one of the guys that. Had Personality and people like I knew your name a year ago. When you first started even thinking about all this, you know I. It's if you'd asked me ahead of time like did I think that we were going to do well, I honestly thought we were going to do well I guess you have to have a certain degree belief confidence to me started but if you ask me during the campaign like, Hey, can you believe all of this stuff that's happening I would have been no I can't believe it because you can say in the abstract Oh yeah. We're GONNA do great and then you get there and then there are crowds of thousands of people. Were folks with a tattoo of your face on their leg or lately you don't predict that it's so an and and you also can't know what that's going to actually feel like when you see like even if you'd say ahead of time like Oh yeah, people be excited. But then you get the air and then people are excited it's a different experience that anything you you've had. Four tell some of those debates. It's funny because you know you know you've made it when you are a characterized on Saturday night live and when the debates are happening, he were on that man how's that to be on SNL? It was funny when I saw myself on I said I was like yes I mean because the fear honestly Chris was that they didn't even bother her yeah impersonating you. Know. There was what candidate that was it impersonated in the first skin and they complain about and then they brought someone impersonating and the following week..

The Washington Post, I read it every single morning and there was the news and then there was op-ed and there was a difference between facts and opinions. Now, I never feel like I'm facts I feel like I'm always getting opinions and even though I agree with the people that I'm watching for the most part I all the way it's being delivered to me sometimes I feel so glib emotional that it's hard for me to feel like I'm getting accurate information or just sort of turns me off it makes me feel like it's gossip session or something. You and I are just old enough to remember a time when there were only three TV networks you. Anchors to said pretty much the same thing and there was thirty minutes of news a day. That was accurate back then to be honest. With you know what I mean. But but it was also read history books that said Columbus discovering America so. We were probably lied to it just seemed like less of a lie. or or it seemed more More factor of in unless personality driven that was part of it. It's like they they almost bound the most boring people leave. Just, speaking of automation they were just robots that were just like reading from a teleprompter. Yeah. The same voice of being like today in. The. And then it's morphed into this other thing and one of the things I called out recently. On twitter when you know an ended up with like a in a in a bit of a back and forth with some characters is the media right now is broken yes I agree and the fact that someone like you. has picked up the fight psych look like this stuff started turn me off because. It seems like we're all just taking a point of view and driving our point of view and then each. News source has become something of a news silo. Where even if I agree with you as others me. Where they're reinforcing certain perspectives and priorities and values over and over again, and what's happened with is they found that that's better for their business. And Right now, all of their incentives are around driving audience particularly in a time when. You decimate let's call a thousand plus local newspapers which you've done. and. Then you have these cable networks That are very driven by ratings and have a format and click bait and getting us to be emotional and getting us to get dream alive I mean I think they know the drug dealers at this point I think they understand the science you know. Morgan Rogan and I were just about that book irresistible about I mean they know that when they put an emotional word or say you know trump slammed like they use these words that really adrenalizing is us and get us to click and it's really scary to think that they know what they're doing. It feeds off of conflict. And when I was running out. I tried not to to get engaged with like the. Trump, tweet of the day because I was like this is so dumb like this playing into his hands and this is not the point and they're they're like deeper problems. But. That is the nature of our news media. There was a producer. Who recently left MSNBC and is called out and said, look off, you saw the story Arianna on a car. She said, look the journalists are not bad people, but the system is driving very very bad decisions and and and and she said, we get better ratings we talk about trump. So yeah, you just talked about and we're theoretically in opposition to trump, but it turns out that when we're making production decisions, we lead with trump all the time house and then it ends up in blaming certain emotional reactions among people. So that that's the one of the big concerns and what's happening to our media is a is A. An emblem of what's going wrong generally, and I could even apply it to the entertainment business that that you're a part of which is essentially the market drives everything now like if it makes money that's what we're GonNa do yeah and yeah and. One of the things I sent on the trails of your money on one side and people on the other who's GonNa win money and they think about it particularly. Neil Postman. There's an amazing book, Neil Postman Road I believe in the twenty s called amusing ourselves I'm in the fifties music ourselves to death and I mean how the way even when I turn on news networks and there's an eagle flies by and it's like don't do it looks like a marvel movie I mean the news now you know news and entertainment are really merging in a very post modern way. That's very surreal to watch but you know I never thought I'd say this but I would really love to just read some boring news with you know in also I. WanNa Talk to you about this because I know you're working on something about I'm. Getting paid for data which is fascinating to me and I would love to get into it. Our attention spans now are so short as well like I I see this as being such an epidemic moving forward in terms of our ability to process information gathered the information we need to make decisions as voters and as Americans which is like by the time I retire senses there's like an ad pops up for a pair of shoes that I put my car two weeks ago. You know I I feel like people talk about the assault on democracy, the bots and the facebook Russian bots and all that too. But also just this assault on our attention and the foul you know like, what can we do to protect ourselves from that? Where do you get your news? Well, it's one reason why podcasts were so good for me, and then we can podcast in particular. and. It's one reason why cable news was not a great format for me because if you sit down and have. A five minute TV hit with five questions and there's a rhythm be like Andrew. What do you think about this? You know why are you doing this and there's always like also baked into those media interviews for much most of my campaign was a lot of skepticism was like do you really think you can win? Stuff, like but honestly, and let me tell you yeah I mean the way that you handle that on Rogan was just so endearing and charming and offense and like yeah, you know we just saw something pretty wild happen you know two thousand sixteen that we never thought could happen. So why not? Yeah and it was fun surprising. A lot of folks because if you lined up one hundred DC pundits. Twenty Twenty nineteen and said you know like is Andrea Aaron going to outlast like a bunch of senators governors or whatever like you zero taker? So, that the fact that we showed that conventional wisdom is failing I'm very, very proud of and thank everyone who supported me and my turn around again everyone's let me ask you that I'm just going to keep trying to drive forward the solutions that I think we need as a country and I would one hundred percent run again if I thought, that was the most effective way to to advance some of these. Solutions Right now universal based gang come. Now majority of the country agrees that we should do it waits. For those that don't I'm sure everyone listening does but the fact that you brought up universal basic income people like that. We couldn't even compute for a lot of people. Now it's just happened is that bother you at all? Oh, I'm thrilled. Of Americans are now on. Seems like you. I. Mean. You're so genuine. It's like you just wanted it to happen regardless of who did it you know Oh. Very much. So I don't really love a lot of the. Politics stuff. Yeah. I, think got a sense that about me. And the behaviors necessary to be successful politician are unrelated or negatively correlated with. The folks that you'd actually want why. What is problem with this idea? I'm just GonNa be the Joe Blow and ask a dumb question like a thousand dollars..

"It's a it's a Superhero Cross for event Whitney Cummings Andrew Yang together at last, and we were just talking like I feel like I've known Whitney for years because she worked with a close friend of mine. And I've been a huge fan. So thank you. This conversation feels long overdue long overdue, and I'm in such a fan ever since obviously read your books but I heard you on Rogan and I gotta be honest with you Andrew, I grew up in Washington DC I grew up around politicians I sort of born very cynical about politicians hearing you on Joe Rogan with such a breath, the fresh air the fact that a someone running for president could even talk for three hours without you know seeming like they're full of shit or disingenuous like I. Just I am such a big Fan of yours and thank you. That was the runner up for my slogan Andrew Yang not full of Shit. Were dealing with like peak cynicism right now when it comes to politics, wouldn't you agree? The back you grew up in DC DC's various regional town and I feel like this is hopefully not anything controversial I feel like you went to a school that also is kind of stealth institutional in the form of n like it's very practical. Bankers and consultants. because. It's like you know I don't follow follow politic super closely because it ends up depressing me and I, get to adrenalizing addicted to it. It's almost like a sport depressing it can get depressed but people like you have re energized me and make me feel hopeful and positive about the future. But when you start learning like you know how campaigns are run run, how much money's involved it makes you start to feel hopeless and helpless. What's fun with me is I ran for president and learned a lot, and now I'm starting to figure out just how fucked up the system is on how to fuck it up So what am I knew that's going to be your next presidential slogan Unfussy America? Well hopefully you know we ended up getting trombone, and then there's less of a sense that we're we're all. Feeling now, but the problems in our system are structural in terms of the incentives that legislators have and the corporate interests the rest of it, which I think most people know something about. But one thing people do not know about is this entire professional consultant class that wraps itself around any candidate. Are, also, not positive. So my goal right now is to figure out everything I've seen in terms of how the software of our political system is leading Iran and that's one of the reasons why people like you very, very smart engaged people have washed their hands of politics. It's not irrational to wash your hands of politics because it's so infuriating and everything seems. So ineffective one of the big fears I have is that politics has become this a drama of characters rising and falling, but none of the real problems get song, right? Right right right right. And the problems are monumental like I was concerned about them even before the pandemic and now they're. Worse than most people even realize. I'm genuinely. terrified for what happens if we don't do something very differently in the next number of dare fight about. We'll talk about automation in a second but for the environment for. Mass riots like what is the main thing you're afraid of? I'm afraid that the way of life for millions, tens of millions of Americans disintegrating in real time, and we put a bit of a stopper in that through the enhanced unemployment benefits and the other stimulus programs that went through the end of July but then they ended and right now we're talking in August, like the deterioration in August is real time. I'm friends with a guy who runs a company that processes all of the financial information for over two million GIG and contract workers. So in other words, he's got like a dashboard of the financial situations of millions of Americans and he can see in real time and he told me that he can see he saw what happened when the job's got lost. In. The spring but they are incomes stayed. Okay. Because of the unemployment benefits in August and then he said it's all. Crashing. Down Right now and the number of temp in jobs. Temp digging contract jobs that are available on this. You know millions of jobs platform has gone down by something like sixty percent. and. So you can imagine millions of Americans who were cobbling together lives through. Task Rabbit Uber. Catering. Anything where you know that people do digging contract work, and that can be all the way up to paralegals and accountants in their contract lawyers like all of that work is disappearing. Yeah and then you imagine what's happening in those households but also in those human beings. If you get that sense of scarcity, it starts to really. Screw you up. And can I just not to interrupt but one of your books and also on Rogan? You mentioned that are Iq goes down by thirteen points when we can't pay our bills. What actually neurologically happens to our brains when we're worried about money we get. DUMBER. We start making less We start making decisions for ourself our judgment gets clouded. Yeah, we become more subject to really nasty negative impulses, which can be self destructive very often, and that's one of the things that I believe is happening right now is that most of us when things started going poorly like we're the, we're going to be we in the people in our immediate vicinity are going to be the first to know about it. You know what I mean like it's not necessarily that you're GONNA go out to the streets or do something. But you're going to start treating yourself poorly intriguing with people in your lives poorly. The mental health crisis. Predates the pandemic but I've got two young kids in the. House and I'm sure they're better situated than most American children and they are not exactly flourishing in this time. You know you look around and you just imagine that playing out around the country. So so those are the things that terrify me like you're watching a real time disintegration. And then you have this political system that is not connected to that. Because of some of the problems that. That I've discovered relatively recently. They existed we'll talk. About what it's like oh I'M GONNA run for President and see what the heck is going on here. So there's a disconnect there. There's a disconnect in the media because the folks who do the reporting. Live and work in certain environments and a lot of their work can be digital so that you're seeing. Glimpses of it. In the food lines and the rest of it, but the true nature of it's still. Massively reported can I ask you real quick again, we're like a comedy podcast. It's called good for you. We try to get people as much information as possible in a way. That's you know fun with some levity because I think something you're so good at is using humor so that people actually. are able to process what you're saying. Some of the stuff is so depressing and bleak that we shut down you know I, find myself I gone to a new site and I just like you know I just don't have the emotional bandwidth to process everything. That's that's also very, very reasonable and rational. You know right now and that's the part of this is like I tell everyone just like just take care of yourself and taking care turning it off yeah yeah. Misinformed. So it's this nightmare, but I'm going to be really honest like you know the new news media is really bothersome to me. You know when I you know I don't talk about my personal politics too much i. think it's the most of them are pretty obvious. But you know when I turn on a never like CNN and I, see the you know the news anchors rolling their eyes and sighing and clearly having a vendetta and clear I..

"But. The. Where back doing an open? Andrew. Yang is on the PODCASTS. Come on I am the fact that we're getting like very fancy politicians on the show. The fact that made it. The fact that a politician would talk to anyone. In this room truly shocker. I came in imagine the interview coming up with Andrew Young is so informative full disclosure I was very nervous and act really weird in the interview I was stuttering I was constantly fixing my hair I was super unprofessional and a little hung over. You Andrew. Yang like this. BMI podcast news like to help everyone. Was a charity initiatives the circuit suffering I gotta be honest with you. So before I interviewed Andrew Yang I couldn't sleep because I was nervous remember out of sleeping pills. Yes. And I took one of my dogs Gabba Pennington's. which is like a dog sedative or like a pain medication. Yeah, I'm saying it. I'm real I don't lie to our fans I tell them what's what I'm not going to pretend to be perfect even though I, come off that way I know you think I'm perfect. I know I'm giving all my secrets right now. No I took I got so nervous that I wasn't GonNa Fall Asleep. So I took a little bit of like old Nyquil from what I was thinking January nyquil I love it can't believe that should legal and then I went into my dogs like medicine cabinet and took Gabum Penton. The expiration date was like two thousand seventeen. So I took like a weird old painkiller and I, felt really odd during the interview I bet you do. Plus being kind of nervous and got his daughter and she isn't anybody else's spirit left their body. My the only one who can see myself from above remember the producers after the guys I think that was a disaster, I think. I'd totally embarrassed my south like I found myself stuttering. But usually when I think I'm moving slow or can't say something properly I'm actually speaking at a normal speed even on my head it sounds like I'm like in some ocean or like in quicksand. Listen back to it and I'm looking at. Her like I'm GonNa can't remember this word.

I used to joke Ethan that people call me a futurist but I am actually apprentice it's all going on right now that's and I and I was contracting myself with other political figures who seem stuck in the past it's like everyone's arguing for some version of the past. So If people call me a futurist. I mean it sounds cool. It makes me sound with it and forward thinking so I mean I'll take it. That is a good point though I mean. The ideas that you are speaking about only. You know a year or two ago before co Vid is already here. Now you be I was your was your kind of main. May know. Platform and. Once covid hit this whole you discussion came forefront like all the sudden. This isn't such a bad idea. Yeah majority of Americans now support universal basic income that just came out this week and. Something like seventy, six percent of Americans favor cash relief during the pandemic, which is, as you can tell a very close cousin to universal basic income and we're getting a ton of economic data right now that showing that the money were putting into people's hands has been enormously positive for the economy for those individuals and families for. People's ability to continue to spend money. In their local communities. So it's been like a large scale. Kind of involuntary you be I trial but I'm happy to say that it seems like now it's mainstream wisdom and the majority of the American people support it I. Wish I didn't have to be under these circumstances but thank you all because you were head of the curve pre pandemic. You're like actually a good idea, and then now we all look like geniuses because everyone's like totally freaking do this. The timing was crazy because once like. Ban. Democrat and everyone started talking about cash relief like year name started trending on twitter because everyone was like Dude Andrew has been talking about this right before happened the timing was unbelievable. But what the government has done like you said, it's cash relief is not really ub I whereas a lot of other countries have gone beyond and just said you know during. During this crisis, we're going to give you cash every month. Our government has stopped short of that. There they gave one time twelve hundred dollars is that enough in your opinion to to really. Help people get by. Well it's better than nothing, but it should have been recurring. Done. That sort of thing every month for virtually everybody as WANNA say. How Happy. I was to see you in Hilo with your help economic relief where you're giving. Five, hundred dollars, which is an enormous difference maker. I, know because we've been doing something similar now but our government should have been doing that kind of thing from day one for virtually all of us and the thing that made me. There's a lot of things that made me very angry about our approach but we were using the irs as a tool to get people these checks and that was the right move under the circumstances but it still misses a ton of people. There are a lot of people that are not filing tax return but. Enough money in many cases, and when we were trying to get money to people, we were just doing what ordinary the people would do which venturing or cash adding or pay pal I mean that's how you and I send money to each other when we send each other money every night which. But. If the visuals tried to send money to each other, you know you can just do it. So that's what my organs been doing our government. How can our government not use an APP that like millions of US used. He's They. Buddy to. GET MONEY I wonder. Do they it almost seems like. To unofficial the government sending money to people through like vim or something. Do, they make their own proprietary thing like how did they do that really within Just, seems odd for the government to send. A trillion dollars over van Mo-. It would have been awesome though I mean it would have been awesome. Agree is that is that a? Year is that a realistic? Actually, I should say cash dot. Gov. Better friends with Jack. Dot Com. Yeah so. It's I. Mean It's A joke about how unofficial teams But that is the kind of move that I wish we'd made and and this point the vast majority of Americans. No we need to do a lot more for people. I'm friends with a guy who has essentially a dashboard to the financial pictures of. Over two million American. TEMP. GIG and contract workers, and so he's seeing their financial fortunes rise and fall and real time, and he said that like their job started to evaporate in March but a lot of them kept getting money from the unemployment benefits and I was like the big lifeline for a lot of these folks and then he saw those benefits end in. July, and then all of a sudden and stuff just starts heading down he also said that the temp gig opportunities of gunned down by sixty percent market. People don't have jobs to seek out. And they had money and now they're not having money and so he seeing all. Evaporate in August. So we should be doing more of what we. Did in April, we descend people money. We should be doing it to virtually everyone every month to your point to meet them because they're doing a lot of sorts of things in other parts of the world right. Yeah I. Mean we're in this situation I don't know how people are going to continue to get by because like you said, the the benefits basically just stopped right where if you're unemployed, we're getting extra six hundred dollars on top of their unemployment and I know for a lot of people they said. This is huge. this is helping me a lot. That's that's ran out outright and so. I, genuinely 'em soup, and then at the same time, you have a lot of places the. The Eviction Moratorium expiring..

"The challenge of trying to have us come together and improve. Civilization is going to be more important than ever right now and even trying to go back to normal is in my mind wanted. It's it's not possible but to you have to try to rebuild the country in a bigger more profound way on the way out A. We need a Marshall Plan style initiative to rebuild the country needs to be Gargantuan Eh needs to be historic almost unprecedented given the scale of the needs. Are you optimistic or you cynical about where we're headed? I am determined to do everything I tend to fight for a better future. That was true before the dozen ten optimistic Andrew this campaign. Well you know you have some time together. Spend some time ago. I think when you're first stories about me was talking about like my leak. Vision of the future is because what I wrote about them with. Something that was true is that you were talking about how things were getting better. And we had to deal with it and not pretend that they weren't getting better fried and the way that it came up in a high profile Benson starting in the second debate in the primary that was in Detroit. You there was a question about climate change and what could be done to mitigate it in a lot of the candidates said well you know we still got time to change everything you said. People have to to higher ground maybe Ryan but like the waters Arganda rise. We have to deal with it and what I think connected to a lot of people with your campaign. Was that sense of like politicians telling us. It's all going to be okay. It's not all GonNa be okay and we should stop pretending that so now. This is a much worse situation at least immediately. Worse situation for a lot of people than things felt last August when I wrote that article. One hundred percent no I. I think this next couple of years is going to be as you said very rocky because the virus is going to be part of it at every moment. We're not going to have a vaccine that we can broadly distribute every American or optimistically. Eighteen months twenty four months. The thing I'm optimistic about is that if we make certain decisions like for example sending everyone two thousand dollars a month for the duration of the crisis it would make things better you know the the crisis has clarified it for many people but millions of Americans were suffering before run of ice came along so the the hope I have. Is that if we start trying to solve this immediate problem we can actually make progress on the other big problems and we start making progress on climate change progress on a lot of things. When I said before that we're experiencing ten years of change in ten weeks it could be that acceleration also includes accelerating the solutions for the problems. You were Let's close with this. You that night in New Hampshire when you were dropping out of the campaign I asked about what your future in politics government might be like We talked about the possibility of running for mayor of New York City. Which is races opened in two thousand twenty one? We talked about the possibility of joining an administration that point we didn't know who the nominee was going to be but now we know that. Joe Biden is the nominee so maybe by that administration should he win? You find that this these last six weeks have made you more interested in being involved in politics and government or more interested in trying to do things from the outside. That's a great question. I'm motivated to solve these problems. And I think government has to be a big part of the solution. A you know you don't have the right level of resources in philanthropy or other parts of the economy without government being involved so my thinking on that hasn't hasn't changed in the sense that if you want to be a part of the solution the reality is that government is going to be a bigger part of our economy and our society moving forward than it has been at any point in our lives. That's just the reality and for people people listening to this podcast or probably generally into politics and they're gonNA use to it but it's like if you didn't you said like oh. I'm just GONNA try and stay out of that stuff. You'RE GOING TO BE MISSING. Where a lot of the most important decisions get made So I hope you're you're talking about how you need to give the the twenty dollar checks or pay Pal infusions. Because then people aren't getting what they need out of government. So does that make you think you're better uses inside or outside? This is the great challenge is like is that does government have massive problems. Yes it does is government necessary to solve the problems. We're dealing with right now. Yes it is and you know. Both those things are true. So it's very difficult you know. It's the frustration that many Americans have. And if you looked up over the past number of months or years and just throw up your hands and said I don't want to deal with politics like you know the this stuff just depresses me. It's exhausting I would look at you and be like yeah. That's a very rational approach. So I'm prepared to do everything I can to try and move solutions across the finish line. I think that government has to be the central part of solving some of these problems. But I will say that. I think that I'm fortunate enough. Thanks to the people who supported my campaign where I have a lot of the platform and visibility that a public figure do regardless of whether or not. I'm holding office at a moment in time. And that's been something. I'm anxious to exercise. We reached millions of people. Do the campaign had almost half a million donors. Many of them are more enthusiastic than ever about our vision for the country. I'm so I think that there are ways we can move vision forward other inside or outside government for for someone who is proud of being a non-politician that was very politician. Type ANSWER OF NOT COMMITTING. The other and learning is an kidding. All right I'm GonNa let you get back to all the rest of the stuff that you have your exciting scheduling quarantine Andrew Yang. Thanks.

"Welcome to the ticket. I'm as well it's been over a month sheltering in place and it's incredible. How much thing to change. Despite so little seeming to change their by day now where they're headed tune-ups the presidential campaign is pretty much frozen place. Donald trump during his free things. Joe Biden trying to keep up his basement studio at the same time. We've seen a tremendous change. And what's possible put it. Like monarch candidates are defined by seemingly impossible Bernie Sanders to Medicare for all Donald Trump and the border wall but one twenty twenty candidate at an impossible policy. That of a sudden wasn't just possible was bipartisan. That'd be Andrew Gain in universal basic income Yang. Wanted to give every American thousand dollars a month. We're not quite there yet. But in principle that policy took a huge step forward in the twelve hundred dollar stimulus check? Sent out just glad that the idea's working but doesn't take real pleasure in it becoming so necessary so quickly and much like what differentiated him from the rest of the field in the Democratic presidential race. He's much less optimistic about what comes next. Take us the last time that you and I sat down was six weeks ago. It feels like maybe a thousand years ago. We were in Keene New Hampshire when you were in the process of realizing that you were going to drop out. I wrote something about you dropping out then that I'm just going to read to you. There is a line in it. That said Will his one thousand dollars a month? Universal basic income become law. Probably not but at this point. It's about as real as Donald Trump's border wall Bernie Sanders Medicare for all so that was February eleventh that published. That feels like longtime time ago in a lot of ways when we just got twelve hundred dollar stimulus checks these tens of millions of Americans did and we all have a very strong sense. That does the last check. We're going to get so. It's certainly been a very eventful last two months in the darkest way possible were living version of universal basic income. Right now this pandemic has clarified for all of us that we need to rethink how to get value into people's hands when we're all trapped in our homes but also how we're going to humanize the economy after we come out of our homes eventually because the reality is that of these millions of jobs that have disappeared. Many of them are gone for good It's not the case that macy's is going to rehire all events. Hundred thirty thousand furloughed employees. It's not the case that these millions of workers are all going to be welcome back with open arms in a friend who advises corporate CEOS say that every CEO is telling them that they're looking at automating jobs away forever. They're looking at smaller office footprint higher levels of remote work. They're making the decisions now. So this is not unfortunately just a blip of this is a transformation that's going to change the way of life for millions of Americans for years and years to come and universal basic income to me needs to be front and center in ways that we can build pads for many of the people that have lost their jobs for good the big idea you had was the FBI since you dropped out. Pope Francis was behind it. Donald TRUMP is behind. Does it feel like you one anyway? Even though you obviously are very far from having won the race it doesn't feel like I want because of all of the Despair and harm It's happening around the country now. First and foremost. I'm just someone who strives to improve people's lives in fact that so many lives have been disrupted and devastated like it's hard to feel anything but sympathy me not. I feel glad that my campaign advanced this idea of putting money into people's hands right when we needed it us on that level ungrateful evidence supported my campaign But it's impossible to feel like a winner when people are suffering so much to me we need to adopt it in full which is to say at a minimum look for every month you are in quarantine you get this money and we should look at doing it. In Perpetuity. Going forward given the level of economic disruption. Because if you look at the industry that have been up ended in. It's not just the obvious ones. Everyone's got kicked the curb so we need to try and rebuild our economy and society on the way out. It's clear to me that we need a Marshall Plan scale initiative to rebuild the country. And that's what I'll be pushing joon and that's what. I hope to be a part of imagining that. This situation like a rubber band. Will we're going to snap back to normal is just not realistic. The future that you had sketched out on the campaign trail was one where automation was becoming more and more part of our lives and That I talk about truck drivers and all those jobs being lost and thinking about what happens to not only the truck drivers jobs with all the other Jobs that are connected to the add more self checkout or whatever it would be wondering when you were thinking about the future you were not ever talking about a pandemic in this kind of change to the world and the economy. Are there things that this situation has opened up to you that you didn't realize where things were in the country or in society before now you can see them a little bit more clearly? Unfortunately this pandemic is accelerating many of the trends. I was deeply concerned about where we're experiencing ten years worth of transformation of our economy in ten weeks because if you're a transportation company or a grocery store your scaling up your investments in robots in technology because they don't get sick and to send them in and at this point there's even a consumer preference for not dealing with a person. There has been this in my opinion somewhat. Misplaced point of view. That's I go people WANNA do people. People don't WanNa deal with robots or machines or self driving cars or self driving trucks and now all out the window to me. What I was concerned about is coming true before my eyes in a compressed timeframe and that's very very concerning so your thought coming off of the campaign before Corona virus was part of our lives was to do a pilot program. You'll be I to raise money and then pick a couple of people at. Did you have a number that you picked the number of people you pilot with a and then essentially do you be? I for them and see what happened right now. We're all living a giant trial. But but it's also it's also what happened. Is that you instead of doing a thousand dollars a month. You shifted to a much more immediate and much smaller injections of money to people whether sometimes like twenty dollars even as it can be enough to make a difference in that person's life at this point that's exactly right. We raised several million dollars with a plan of running universal basic income trials than various communities and attracting results which we are still hoping to do and planning to do but in this context we pivoted to just giving money to people who needed it in front of economic relief. Our first big grants were thousand dollars. Two thousand families in the Bronx that were identified as struggling economically through an organization. Their neighborhood trust which was a financial counseling to the working poor in the Bronx. So they've been a very high level of confidence that not only. Would they get the money? They would also get financial counseling session on top of it not blank check. Yes that was the first move. And then we started giving micro grants Initially between two hundred fifty and five hundred dollars to people but then we were overwhelmed by the demand where I think right now. We're up to around thirty thousand plus Requests. Which if you do the math on that would be fifteen million dollars If we were to give them five hundred dollars and we didn't have fifty nine dollars. We're still trying to raise money. But we started giving out twenty dollars and sending nice messages saying like look. We can't do everything we want. But here's twenty dollars and we started doing that in part because when we did that a little bit people expressed just how grateful they were than anyone actually is trying to help them like. You know that there's such a sense of isolation and hopelessness and despair among many Americans right now that even just getting twenty bucks the pay pal and you'll be all right and we care about. You actually seem to really help people in a meaningful way. So we've been now giving between twenty five hundred dollars depending upon our resources so I'm about championing universal basic income. Everyone knows that. But we're in the midst of a crisis right now and the best thing we can do is just help. People get through it. So that's what my ordination shifted towards for the duration of this crisis the messages we are getting our overwhelming. There's so much. Despair and trauma and economic insecurity and a very bleak sense of the future or unclear sense of the future. And it's very hard to navigate that level of uncertainty are there any that have struck you that Without revealing private details about the person who sent in any that have stayed with the main message gotten is that they do not think that our institutions are going to help them like they filed for unemployment and have not heard back. They call day after day and just never gone through anyone. They've filed for a refund but it went to prepare and they don't know what's going on or it got sent to an old address. There's like a very high degree of frustration and hopelessness where our institutions concerned. It's one reason why even sending.
"andrew yang" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"The past year or so. There have been at least twenty eight candidates in the race for the Democratic Democrat president from including a bunch of very prominent people. Very serious BIOS. Who've just come and gone? People like Senator Comma Harris who entered the race is on the front runners but dropped out earlier earlier this month or the current Mayor Mayor of the largest city in America New York City's build a blase whose presidential candidacy barely registered as a blip amid all the comings and goings goings our been to genuine surprise stories. One is the rise of Buddha judge. The mayor of a city of about one hundred thousand people who won his last election we just over eighty five hundred votes. He's now polling in the top four nationally highly competitive in the first two states and the other is Andrew Gang who very few people had heard of before he decided to run for president. The forty four year old entrepreneur entrepreneur has built basically completely from scratch out of nothing. Erode bus campaign operation attracted a genuinely enthusiastic basis. Support has raised lots of money and it is all allowed him to outlast and outpolled numerous sitting governors and senators and has repeatedly propelled him onto the debates. Dave even as many of his bigger bigger-name rivals have failed to make the cut. It's really pretty remarkable story and joining me now. Is Andrew Yang Democratic candidate for president. It's good to have you Chris Great to see you happy holidays. Thank you for having me on. Okay so I wanNA talk about healthcare. The first this has been obviously the subject of a lot of debate. You've talked talked about the debates you've talked to on the campaign trail but I'm slightly confused about your position. The first ad that your campaign ran was with your wife and talk about your son and she he says that you would fight for Medicare for all. It's been sort of a part of the platform along with the freedom dividend which we'll talk about you recently. Put out a healthcare. Some language would your website where you say you support the spirit of Medicare for all which leads me slightly confused about what actually pro grammatically would want to see happen. Well what Medicare for all means too. Many Americans is universal healthcare. That's high quality and lower zero cost and that is exactly what I'm championing. We need to provide health care to all Americans but I would not get rid of all private insurance plans immediately because millions of Americans are on those plans enjoy those plans in many cases negotiated for those plans. In lieu of higher wages. The goal of the government has to be demonstrate that we can out compete the private insurance plans and squeeze them out of the market over time so so is that something along. The lines of positions taken by Joe Biden indigestion. A few others in which there would be essentially the availability of buying into Medicare for poor people. Yes it is quite similar but our plan. Dan has lower minimal cost for many Americans and then co pays just so that you have a little bit skin in the game so it is similar but we think that we've improved improved upon some of the other proposals. That are out there the other big the other big issue that you've talked about and I think there's been some kind of engines of your campaign for while. I think it was the thing that you are known on for his Some version of universal basic income. You call it a dividend of one thousand dollars a month. There's a lot of people who are two two questions about that one. This is sort of confused about how that interact with other things. The government does the earned income tax credit or other benefits for instance. Like would those go away and be replaced by that leaving someone worse off and second second of all the question of you know for people that are in dire poverty or really have problems with with with low income work. That's not enough money. Also the last thing I would ever do is take something away from Americans or leave someone worse off the freedom dividend is universal. And opt in. And if you decide to opt in you would be foregoing certain cash cash like benefits that do not include healthcare. Do not include housing vouchers. When I talked to Americans around the country those who are receiving government German benefits often are very anxious about losing those benefits? I love the earned income tax credit but thirty percent of Americans were eligible for the earned income tax credit. I don't actually receive it because they don't understand how to file for and there are massive timing of payments issues. Because if your car breaks down now and I tell you you're going to get a tax refund next spring. It doesn't help you get to work so I would never do anything to leave. Americans worse off. We have to build a foundation or floor that elevates elevates us all and starts to move forward in the twenty first century because we're going through the greatest economic transformation in our country's history right now. Let's talk about that. You talk about the threat of autumn automation and I think you connect that in some ways and there's a lot of people I think who who similar school of thoughts and people written about you be I another contacts ex. That automation is going to take away a lot of people's jobs in the future. It's going to get progressively more ambitious. What jobs are automated either? The counter to that and Paul Krugman wrote this up and other people said it is that that threat has always loomed at every moment of industrial development. And there's something called a lump of labour fallacy. Right the idea that there's a set number of jobs in the robots or the machines or the factory machines. Take some of them. There's less for everyone else which has not borne out to be the case. Why do you think it's different this time well? The pace of change in the scope of technology is much much more extreme. This time it's going to impact many more parts of the economy. You then pass transitions. I'm here in South Carolina and they lost ninety thousand manufacturing jobs now a third of their stores in malls or closing and being a retail clerk. Mark is still the most common job in our country so we have to recognize that. Yes they're going to be many new jobs that get created but these jobs are going to tend tend to be four different people with different skills in smaller numbers than the jobs that are being lost in communities around the country. But isn't that partly just a question of like Labor bargaining power and also a little bit of redistribution right. I mean like there was no reason that for instance making a car was a good middle class job until the UAW nuys and basically made it a good middle class jobs. It seems like there's lots of jobs that might get created in the question about how much power workers have over their wages. Ages ends up being really the determinative. One yeah you hit the nail on the head where unions have been this massive force for better compensation and benefits benefits. Union membership has declined by fifty percent over the last number of years and as a result most Americans are not benefiting from that kind of collective bargaining power. Or if you put this foundation of a thousand dollars a month into workers hands it actually makes workers much much harder to exploit and push around and this plan that I'm championing. Championing is not Originally my plan Andy. Stern who used to be the largest labor union leader in the country proposed this as a response to automation in in his twenty fifth book raising the floor and so this idea has been with us for a long time is just overdue that we actually put it into law. Okay final question. I WanNa ask you you about your trajectory here and your relationship to the Democratic Party. It seems to me that from the folks that are supporters of yours and people online that you're you're reaching a lot of people who haven't traditionally been involved in politics or part of the Democratic Party. How do you view your relationship with the Democratic Party? What have you is your your role in the larger sort of ecosystem? Oh system of the party. In whose primary running. Thanks for asking Chris. I registered Democrat for a long time. I served as is an honorary ambassador. In the Obama Administration to me. The Democratic Party needs to try and dig deeper and figure out how. We're going to solve the problems. I got Donald Trump elected. But I've been a loyal Democrat for years. I'm just trying to provide new energy and new ideas to the Democratic Party to help us all move forward in the twenty first century entry. I would certainly never do anything that would increase the chances of Donald trump becoming president again staying president. And I'm thrilled that I'm bringing independence and Libertarians. Disaffected trump voters into the fold. That's how we're going to grow the Democratic Party and that's how we're going to beat Donald Trump in twenty twenty all right Andrew under Yang. Who is in South Carolina where he is campaigning? Running for President Thank you so much for making time tonight. I appreciate it. Thank you Chris. South Carolina the state of the arrest.

"Katie. Order blowing. These picking on dirt eastern Alice, but I eight twenty twenty democratic presidential candidate and author of the war on normal people. The truth about America's disappearing jobs and why universal basic income is our future. That's all the time we have ladies Andrew Yang, ladies and gentleman. I haven't read your book, but I read the title I think I get it all. Okay. So I'm gonna ask you the same question of as many the contenders who've been on our show. Twenty three of them. I'm gonna run be twenty three and me. You have some those twenty three people are running. Why you I'm running for president because I'm focused on solving the problem that got Donald Trump elected in the first place in twenty sixteen. He's our president because we automated away, four million manufacturing jobs in Michigan. Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. All the swing states that we needed to win and my friends and technology. Now we're about to do the same thing to millions of retail jobs. Call center jobs, fast food, jobs, truck driving jobs and on and on. We have to wake America up to the fact that it is not immigrants that are causing these problems. It's not immigrants. My right. Technology got hard to get them to applaud. And so we need to solve these problems for the American people. And that's how we beat Trump in twenty twenty that's how we move the country. Yeah. You got your lane. You got to issue. Nobody else has which is they're coming for your jobs. And what jobs are we talking about? I know you talk about in your book jobs that involve a routine. Right. Something that is repetitive. Those jobs that can be replaced by machines autumn ocean amazing artificial intelligence. Yes. What areas that we talking about forty four percent of American jobs. Fall into either. Repetitive manual work or repetitive cognitive work. So we're talking about retail jobs, call center jobs, fast food jobs retail. Well, retail thirty percent of American malls are closing in the next four years, because Amazon sucking up twenty billion dollars in commerce every year, and you don't think of that as an automation thing because the riots not going in and doing I still think of retail is go to the mall and how could a machine if I asked do I look in this, you know. This make me look fat now. But you're yeah. People don't care about that anymore. They buy everything online. Yeah. And if you go to the fulfillment center, it's wall-to-wall robot. So that's why retails also being automated away. Okay. So that's part of your plan, then the thing, that's in your book, UB, I, which Aboul disease. I didn't even I know. But every time I hear you be I think. It's one reason, why we rebranded it the freedom dividend. And it's a plan where everyone gets thousand dollars a month..
