  2020 年台裔美國總統大選參選人楊安澤(Andrew Yang)的競選口號是「人性至上」(Humanity First),他提出自己的全民基本收入版本,為了因新科技而及將到來的失業潮提出的緊急應變措施。

  在人工智慧、機器人與自動化軟體越發蓬勃發展之時,美國理工學生的前途一片光明,矽谷工程師的起薪直逼 20 萬美元!除了人文學科的招生越來越黯淡之外,一些即將消失的工作將使美國陷入巨大的社會與經濟動盪。根據一項最新預測的數字,未來 7 年內將有 1300 萬美國工人失業,這已經進行中的海嘯已經侵襲到社會的不同層面中。從蕭條的城鎮、毒品的氾濫到各式社會弊病,未來使人憂心,我們該如何避免?


  「楊安澤是把夢想付諸行動的稀有前瞻者。The War on Normal People 既是對我們社會與經濟問題的深度檢討,也是對更美好未來的創新路線圖。」–Thrive Global 創辦人Arianna Huffington(文 / 博客來編譯)

From 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, a captivating account of how "a skinny Asian kid from upstate" became a successful entrepreneur, only to find a new mission: calling attention to the urgent steps America must take, including Universal Basic Income, to stabilize our economy amid rapid technological change and automation.

The shift toward automation is about to create a tsunami of unemployment. Not in the distant future--now. One recent estimate predicts 45 million American workers will lose their jobs within the next twelve years--jobs that won't be replaced. In a future marked by restlessness and chronic unemployment, what will happen to American society?

In The War on Normal People, Andrew Yang paints a dire portrait of the American economy. Rapidly advancing technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics and automation software are making millions of Americans' livelihoods irrelevant. The consequences of these trends are already being felt across our communities in the form of political unrest, drug use, and other social ills. The future looks dire-but is it unavoidable?

In The War on Normal People, Yang imagines a different future--one in which having a job is distinct from the capacity to prosper and seek fulfillment. At this vision's core is Universal Basic Income, the concept of providing all citizens with a guaranteed income-and one that is rapidly gaining popularity among forward-thinking politicians and economists. Yang proposes that UBI is an essential step toward a new, more durable kind of economy, one he calls "human capitalism."



Andrew Yang is the founder of Venture for America, a major non-profit that places top college graduates in start-ups for two years in emerging U.S. cities to generate job growth and train the next generation of entrepreneurs. Yang has been the CEO, co-founder or executive at a number of technology and education companies. Yang was named a Presidential Ambassador of Global Entrepreneurship and a Champion of Change by the White House and one of Fast Company’s "100 Most Creative People in Business." He was also named to the National Advisory Council for Innovation and Entrepreneurship of the Department of Commerce. A major documentary with an Oscar-winning director, Generation Startup, featuring Yang and Venture for America, was released in Fall 2016 and is available on Netflix and other streaming platforms. He is a graduate of Columbia Law, where he was an Editor of the Law Review, James Kent Scholar and winner of the Class of 1912 Prize, and Brown University where he graduated with degrees in Economics and Political Science.
