276. Andrew Yang — Not Left. Not Right. Forward.

The Michael Shermer Show

Michael Shermer speaks with Andrew Yang about the Forward Party, the future of politics in a party duopoly, political partisanship, and how to bring about the change we need. This conversation is based on Yang’s new book Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy. Shermer and Yang discuss: why we have a political duopoly, instead of, say, 7 parties like in Germany • ranked-choice voting and open primaries • gerrymandering and voting restriction laws and policies • the Rational Public • fairness doctrine • local journalism, newspapers, and TV stations • term limits • nonpartisan primaries • data as a property right • Department of Technology • Universal Basic Income (UBI) • reparations • abortion • the polarization of radio, television, and social media • ideology and political polarization • Trump in 2016, 2020 … and 2024? • what it’s like to run for President • what his fellow politicians are really like in person • what he learned on the campaign trail • how his many failures in life prepared him for political campaigning • why market solutions to social media polarization won’t work • why you should join the Forward Party even if you don’t agree with all their points. 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.

Mission DeFi EP 45 - Andrew Yang's Lobby3 is here to help advance #DeFi. How they will do it & why. @AndrewYang @Lobby3d

Mission: DeFi

Andrew Yang's Lobby3 is ready to educate the US Congress on how DeFi can help average people get ahead.  I was a big supporter of Andrew Yang's during his presidential run. While I do believe that UBI is good policy, I primarily supported him, because he took a pragmatic and logical approach to solving problems that was non-partisan and welcoming. That is why when he announced he was forming a lobbying DAO to advance Web3/DeFi, I immediately let him know I was onboard and I wanted to interview him about it.  Why he chose this fight How they plan to make it work How the org will be structured and the critical need for everyone to be involved What it was like to jump from one campaign to another I walked him through some use cases as well that I believe fit the mission to demonstrate DeFi in real life I encourage you to get involved with this powerful community and movement.  Guest Name: Andrew Yang Guest Twitter: https://twitter.com/AndrewYang Project Name: Lobby3 Project URL: https://www.lobby3.io Project Twitter: https://twitter.com/Lobby3D--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/missiondefi/support

#119 - Andrew Yang on our very long-term future, and other topics most politicians won't touch

80,000 Hours Podcast with Rob Wiblin

Andrew Yang - past presidential candidate, founder of the Forward Party, and leader of the 'Yang Gang' - is kind of a big deal, but is particularly popular among listeners to The 80,000 Hours Podcast. Maybe that's because he's willing to embrace topics most politicians stay away from, like universal basic income, term limits for members of Congress, or what might happen when AI replaces whole industries. Links to learn more, summary and full transcript. But even those topics are pretty vanilla compared to our usual fare on this show. So we thought it'd be fun to throw Andrew some stranger or more niche questions we hadn't heard him comment on before, including: 1. What would your ideal utopia in 500 years look like? 2. Do we need more public optimism today? 3. Is positively influencing the long-term future a key moral priority of our time? 4. Should we invest far more to prevent low-probability risks? 5. Should we think of future generations as an interest group that's disenfranchised by their inability to vote? 6. The folks who worry that advanced AI is going to go off the rails and destroy us all... are they crazy, or a valuable insurance policy? 7. Will people struggle to live fulfilling lives once AI systems remove the economic need to 'work'? 8. Andrew is a huge proponent of ranked-choice voting. But what about 'approval voting' - where basically you just get to say "yea" or "nay" to every candidate that's running - which some experts prefer? 9. What would Andrew do with a billion dollars to keep the US a democracy? 10. What does Andrew think about the effective altruism community? 11. What's one thing we should do to reduce the risk of nuclear war? 12. Will Andrew's new political party get Trump elected by splitting the vote, the same way Nader got Bush elected back in 2000? As it turns out, Rob and Andrew agree on a lot, so the episode is less a debate than a chat about ideas that aren't mainstream yet... but might be one day. They also talk about: * Andrew's views on alternative meat * Whether seniors have too much power in American society * Andrew's DC lobbying firm on behalf of humanity * How the rest of the world could support the US * The merits of 18-year term limits * What technologies Andrew is most excited about * How much the US should spend on foreign aid * Persistence and prevalence of inflation in the US economy * And plenty more Get this episode by subscribing to our podcast on the world's most pressing problems and how to solve them: type 80,000 Hours into your podcasting app. Producer: Keiran Harris Audio mastering: Ben Cordell Transcriptions: Katy Moore
