Overview

Why does change rarely happen in American politics? In Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy, former presidential and New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang gives a behind-the-scenes look at American elections and the broken two-party system.

Yang is an attorney, businessman, and the founder of Venture for America, a nonprofit helping young entrepreneurs start their companies and create jobs. Yang's first book, The War on Normal People, argued the case for a federal universal basic income in the United States. While Yang did not win his bid for the Democratic Party nomination, his campaign greatly increased awareness about the potential benefits of a federal universal basic income - or UBI.

Yang proposes political solutions that go beyond the agenda of the two-party system. Recently, Yang left the Democratic Party, registering as an independent and starting a political action committee, the Forward Party.
