Andrew Yang will introduce Universal Basic Income
Andrew Yang understands the coming technological disruption, and the need to rethink labor and income. He will address this by introducing Universal Basic Income (UBI).
Yang has considerable experience in the technology sector, and understands how important it is for the future of the economy.
As technology rapidly advances, the job economy struggles to keep up, meaning that jobs are increasingly replaced through automation.
As more and more jobs disappear due to automation, it is vital that America has a strong plan to combat this and ensure those whose jobs will be replaced have an alternative path. Additionally, Yang wants to regulate the social media companies that currently run riot, both in terms of the meteoric rise of social media use and their unrestrained economic structure.
While automation and technology certainly present extremely pressing issues for politicians, it is not enough to only consider this as a platform. The Democratic nominee has an extremely complex task in guiding America post-2020, and automation is only one in a host of issues.
[P1] The job economy is suffering greatly due to the rise of automation. [P2] Yang is the only candidate taking this seriously. [P3] Yang should be elected as the Democratic candidate.
[Rejecting P3] Yang's policies do not adequately deal with the issues presented by automation.
