What it the Yang Idea for UBIs?
Entrepreneur Andrew Yang based his 2020 presidential campaign in the idea that giving half a million dollars to lowest-income residents was the way to go. Payments would be of around $2,000 each year.
Despite not winning the election, his idea remained as a staple of the American way of life during the pandemic, especially when Donald Trump left the presidency. This income would come from the government or private sources. That’s how many low-income Americans have lived for the better part of the last two years.
