Up-and-coming 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang describes his campaign as one of “ideas.” He also puts a large emphasis on math, often using the phrase, “I’ve looked at the numbers.” Some of the campaign posters and hats seen at his rally this week in front of the Lincoln Memorial simply read, “MATH.”
Yang is running on many ambitious ideas, from universal basic income — which is perhaps his most popular policy among voters — to socialized healthcare. And while these are not new ideas, Yang is delivering them in a new way.
- “Humans are more important than money.
- The unit of a Human Capitalism economy is each person, not each dollar.
- Markets exist to serve our common goals and values.”
