ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Andrew Yang was a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and a 2021 candidate for mayor of New York City. Named by President Obama as a Presidential Ambassador of Global Entrepreneurship, he is the founder of Humanity Forward and Venture for America. Yang’s New York Times bestselling book The War on Normal People helped introduce the idea of universal basic income into the political mainstream. Yang is a graduate of Brown University, where he graduated with degrees in economics and political science, and Columbia Law School, where he was an editor of the Law Review. He lives with his family in New York.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

 

“Andrew Yang surged to popularity in 2020 because he saw—like none of the other presidential candidates—that our problems came from the complex interactions of democracy, economics, and technology. In this important book, he explains how these three domains interact and he proposes solutions that, when combined, would lead us forward to human-centered capitalism and a vibrant, just, and prosperous democracy.”

— JONATHAN HAIDT

“Can there be another political party in the U.S.? Can we find a way past toxic partisanship to a fact-based government? In Forward, Yang does not just give us a laundry 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

Forward is a vitally important book that shows how entrepreneurial, independent thinking will be the indispensable ingredient to solving our biggest political and economic challenges.”

— MARK CUBAN

 

“It’s no wonder that ever since Yang burst onto the scene with a positive movement that spoke directly to the pain Americans are feeling, both parties have been taking his ideas. With Forward, Yang once again proves he is a necessary and powerful voice.”

— VAN JONES

“A powerful and compelling, beautifully written story of an American’s dream for a better America—with a clear account of how to get there.”

— LAWRENCE LESSIG

“Despite being ignored and written off by mainstream media, no 2020 candidate had more of an impact in changing our political conversation than Andrew Yang.”

— KRYSTAL BALL

“Yang is the most original thinker in the political scene.”

— SCOTT GALLOWAY

“Yang offers thoughtful, sensible proposals for a better democracy.”

— KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Fascinating and timely . . . poised to make news.”
