Prior to reading this book, I have heard Andrew Yang’s arguments for him to be President of the United States. I don’t think he has much of a chance to be nominated but I give him enormous credit for seeing what will happen in the future.Particularly when it comes to jobs and employment given all the automation and technology improvements that are pending.

This book serves as Yang’s crystal ball as he gazes into today’s trends and foresees a future where there will be tremendous upheaval in the job markets including those that appear safe now.

It’s a bit of an eye opening book as you don’t hear much discussion or debate among Presidential campaigns or political leaders as to what the immediate future may look like.

Listed below are some of my highlighted notes from the book:

Today 40% of American children are born outside of married households.

Right now some of the smartest people in the country are trying to figure out how to replace you with an overseas worker, a cheaper version of you, or, increasingly, a widget, software program, or a robot.

The top one percent have accrued 52% of the real income growth in America since 2009.

CoStar, a commercial real estate firm, estimated in 2017 that roughly 310 out of the nation’s 1300 shopping malls are at high risk of losing an anchor store, which typically begins a mall’s steep decline.

So the incentives to adopt automated truck driving are massive – – tens of billions of dollars saved annually plus thousands of lives.

Amazon now controls 43% of total e-commerce in the United States. It has a market capitalization of $435 billion it is virtually impossible for any brick and mortar retail to compete against Amazon on price.

I met with a technologist who works with one of the major financial institutions. He estimated the 30% of the bank’s home office workers – – more than 30,000 employees – – were engaged in clerical tasks transferring information from one system to another, and he believed that their roles would be automated within the next five years.

In 2015, a law professor pointed out that Yale spent more of the previous year on private equity managers managing its endowment – – $480 million – – then it spent on tuition assistance, fellowships, and prizes for students – – $170 million.

It's not that professors are getting paid more. It's not even all the new buildings and facilities. It's the universities have become more bureaucratic and added layers of administrators.

Wow. Stronger on identifying problems than presenting solutions, but it does a pretty good job of each. The unanswered question is “how do we implement these solutions” (UBI, single payer), and how do we avoid the seemingly universal horrible execution quality of anything the US Government does. Yang’s answer would be “vote for me”, and if I could vote in the US, I’d seriously consider it. ( )

What a shame, I think he would've been an awesome president. ( )

This is an excellent read. It chilled me to my bones. I don't think any of his solutions will work.

What I can say to the Zuckerbergs, the Bezos', the Pages, the Ellisons, the Musks, and the minuscule percentage of the population who hoard all the wealth on this overcrowded world can be said in one picture.



Yes, I know you are prepping for it. So was she. ( )

The genius of Andrew Yang is something that, I think, society does not yet appreciate. I love this book because it details the reasons why Andrew Yang holds the beliefs that he does, supporting his claims with research and surmounting evidence. This book is essentially Andrew Yang talking to the reader about the problems that America is facing - these problems will continue to degrade the state of the "normal" American moving into the future. I highly recommend this book to all people because it is important to have an educated populous. And since the state of the political climate is so divisive, having well-rounded ideas is something that a lot of people cherish. Andrew Yang's message is very clear, things are changing, for the worse, for the average American citizen, and now is the time to fix it. ( )
