Some nice points but he doesn't stand a chance! And why does he laugh at some of the topics? They aren't funny but kinda sad actually. Btw, truckers are being paid 60k$ for beginner skills and up to 100k$ for experienced truckers, company drivers. Now he wants to give them 12k$ per year while he finds a way to give them a new purpose and meaning to their life? That is absurd and offensive. How about you pay them 60k$-100k$ based on what they make now and then you find the meaning for their lifes, and please take your time. The fact that some of these people are actually considering this kinds of ideas is Insane. And that is exactly what is going to happen to all of the people that will become jobless, they will get insane. Try dealing with millions of jobless insane people that are on 1k$ a month. But wait, they should be happy because now they don't have to work and they get dividend by being shareholders of the US economy. Fucking hilarious

Hey I've got an idea. Instead of "giving" everyone $1000 a year, how about just don't take it from them in the first place?

Charya Don't take this personally, I'm sure you're well intentioned. But you live in fantasy world of you think that's how things will pan out. Only roughly half of the US population actually pays federal income tax of any kind. What Yang is proposing is wealth redistribution when it gets boiled down. Yes, those that are below any of the tax brackets will be helped by this (in the short run at least) but anyone who pays more that $1000 in taxes a month (most middle class families) will see a net drop in spendable income. And if you don't think that the markets won't just adjust to everyone having an extra $1000 a month to spend, I'd say do a little brushing up on supply and demand theory. I think Yang is spot on about the impending problem our world economy faces but the fact that even some fiscal conservatives and even libertarians think that government sponsored wealth redistribution is the answer absolutely baffles me.

Steven Tharalson Well according to him, one of the ideas of the "Freedom Dividend" is that it would encourage people to do the work they like. Generally, this would work a lot better if we give them $1000 instead of taking a $1000 less in taxes because it feels like you're getting something and that's what's motivating.

This comment section is filled with people who would rather see people starve than try something new. It's also filled with stupid blanket statements, false dichotomies, and pure nonsense, like the idea that if you give a normal family 1000 dollars, they will spend it on heroin. These are the same people who are against increasing the minimum wage. They're fine with throwing billions at increasing a bloated defense budget, but riot at the idea of poor people getting food. It doesn't matter. Yang is too smart to be president. He will be called an elitist and the candy corn with the reading level of a 3rd grader will win a second term.

Thank you, Joe Rogan, for this podcast that took this mostly unknown candidate and brought his ideas and platform to the attention of the people. I think that is really important and I hope this helps the Yang 2020 campaign!

He is good at pointing out economic problems, but I do not see his solution being possible or safe.

this guy sounds like a good used car salesman. the y only get good one way. I want to hear about criminal reform. end the war on drugs. and give more freedoms to the people instead of nickel and diming us to death. milton Friedman probably turned in his grave when this guy associated his plan with him.

This is nonsense, his 4 trillion dollar plan got quickly glossed over as oh actually only 1.8 and no problem to get. Says if you already get welfare or food stamps $1k a month you'll get nothing from this when those are probably the people that need a UBI in the first place. I'm very much against UBI and nothing this guy said changed that. He also complained about student loans being outrageous which people need to just be more educated on student loans and should only get a large student loan debt if you're going into a career such as pharmacy or medicine or engineering that will actually make it worth it

his math to get to the 1.8 TRillion is super weak. "well we will PROBABLY save some money on the prison system, and will PROBABLY save some in healthcare"... "and then we will get the rest from taxing Amazon and Facebook." ok... so when Amazon and Facebook move their headquarters out of the U.S. because their suddenly losing billions in new taxes, now where's all that cheddar coming from. 1.8 TRILLION. when your talking trillions your talking ridiculous amounts of money. 1 Trillion seconds from now is year 33,707. it's not a trivial number and I'm not trusting the, "well it'll PROBABLY come from this or that."

Sounds like a solid guy, but some of his points are self conflicting. First he says that like 50% of US citizens can't afford an unexpected 500 dollar bill, then he later says that the US is a rich country. Does he mean that the government is rich? We know that's not true either.....

Tiernan Barry it's not self conflicting at all. the wealth trickles down to nowhere and has done so since the early 80s

Self driving trucks blah blah blah. Those road drivers are modern day slaves anyway. They could get a job at McDonald's and make the same. No difference if you make a slave wage or completely do away with it.

Brian Walker The problem is that McDonald’s is already pretty automated. I'm working there, the kiosks replace the cashier, and soon even the food assembly. The biggest problem is that not only truck drivers are in the danger zone. Almost any entry job from law to medicine, well paid office jobs going to be useless in 5 years time. And not just in the name of money, as HR has numerous problems with human workforce, micromanagement, sick pay... But try to think reverse. People will have more free time to innovate, invest in research and development, higher demand for entertainment, need for arts and interesting contents. there will be new jobs to keep an eye on the machines... We could end this modern slavery.

Brian Walker so going from 60k a year to minimum wage. I'm sure they would all love that. Also, those jobs are already filled and will soon be automated as well. then what?
