  • NEIL: THIS IS THE BEST NEWS

  • ANDREW YANG HAS EVER HEARD.

  • THE GUY IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT

  • OF THE UNITED STATES, JUST GOT

  • THE BACKING OF ELON MUSK AS AN

  • IDEAL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.

  • YOU KNOW, THAT CAME OUT OF THE

  • BLUE.

  • I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT MOVES

  • THE NEEDLE BUT WHAT DO YOU

  • THINK?

  • >> YEAH, IT'S CERTAINLY

  • INTERESTING TO HEAR ELON MUSK

  • COME OUT SO EARLY ALREADY AND

  • SAY HE SUPPORTS ANDREW YANG, WHO

  • ACCORDING TO THE POLLS, HASN'T

  • BEEN NECESSARILY ONE OF THE TOP

  • CONTENDERS SO FAR.

  • BUT WHAT'S REALLY INTERESTING

  • ABOUT ANDREW YANG IS SOMETHING

  • THAT AXIOS HAS REPORTED ON A

  • LOT, HE REALLY DOES HAVE A

  • FOLLOWING AND THE PEOPLE WHO DO

  • FOLLOW HIM, FOLLOW HIM

  • PASSIONATELY.

  • HE CERTAINLY HAS A BASIS OF

  • PEOPLE WHICH NOW INCLUDES ELON

  • MUSK WHO REALLY SPORTS SOME OF

  • HIS MORE PROGRESSIVE IDEAS AND

  • WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE HIS MIND

  • AND FIND SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS.

  • NEIL: YOU KNOW, I THINK HE WAS

  • THE FIRST OUT THE GATE WITH THIS

  • GIVE EVERY AMERICAN $500 OR

  • $1,000, THEN OTHERS QUICKLY

  • FOLLOWED.

  • >> IT JUST SEEMS AS IF IT'S

  • PLAYING LEAPFROG IN TERMS OF THE

  • DEMOCRATIC CONTENDERS THAT IF

  • ONE MAKES A SUGGESTION THAT

  • ISN'T AT LEAST PUSHED BACK AT

  • THEM, THEY TEND TO EMBRACE THAT

  • AS WELL, BECAUSE THEY WANT TO

  • DIFFERENTIATE THEMSELVES ON

  • OTHER THINGS BUT NOT CREATE A

  • WEDGE TO BE COMPARED VERSUS THE

  • OTHER CANDIDATES.

  • >> THIS WHOLE UNIVERSAL BASIC

  • INCOME THING KIND OF SCOFFED AT

  • AND THROWING OUT BY A LOT OF

  • PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES OUT BUT NOT

  • IN A COMMUNITY THAT LOOKS AT

  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

  • THAT'S WHAT ELON MUSK KIND OF

  • LIVES IN THAT WORLD.

  • SO WHEN PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THAT

  • AND TALK ABOUT IT AND SAY THE

  • ROBOTS ARE COMING TO TAKE OVER

  • AND THEY ARE, TO SOME EXTENT,

  • BUT THAT HAVE THE MOST

  • AGGRESSIVE PREDICTIONS OUT THERE

  • ABOUT HOW MANY JOBS ARE REALLY

  • AT RISK, THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE

  • THAT HAVE ACTUALLY HAD THOSE

  • CONVERSATIONS ALREADY ABOUT HEY,

  • LISTEN, WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO BUT

  • WE HAVE TO GIVE PEOPLE A STIPEND

  • OR MONEY.

  • IN THE GENERAL POPULATION WHERE

  • PEOPLE HAVEN'T REALLY THOUGHT

  • ABOUT IT YET, IT'S LIKE THAT'S

  • STUPID, IT WILL NEVER WORK.

  • IN THAT COMMUNITY, THAT'S WHY IT

  • KIND OF MAKES SENSE.

  • I DON'T KNOW IF IT MART

  • I DON'T KNOW IF IT MATTERS BUT

  • IT MAKES SENSE WHY ELON MUSK HAS

  • HIS ENDORSEMENT.

  • NEIL: WASN'T HIS PREMISE AND

  • OTHERS WHO ESPOUSE THIS, IT

  • LESSENS THE LIKELIHOOD YOU WILL

  • NEED INDIRECT HELP FROM THE

  • GOVERNMENT, IF IT GOES DIRECTLY

  • TO YOU, YOU USE IT AS YOU WISH,

  • IT LESSENS THE LOAD ON UNCLE

  • SAM?

  • >> EXACTLY.

  • THAT'S THE IDEA BEHIND IT.

  • IT REALLY IS, IT BECOMES MORE

  • RELEVANT AS WE GO INTO THIS AGE

  • OF AUTOMATION AND AS A.I.

  • BECOMES MORE PART OF YOUR

  • DAY-TO-DAY LIFE.

  • AS JOBS WE WOULD TYPICALLY SEE

  • AS JOBS FOR MIDDLE INCOME

  • AMERICA START DISAPPEARING AND

  • AS AUTOMATION TAKES OVER THOSE

  • JOBS, THE IDEA IS THAT EVERYONE

  • NEEDS TO HAVE SOME KIND OF

  • UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME AND AS

  • YOU SAID, BY PUTTING A PROGRAM

  • IN PLACE LIKE ANDREW YANG HAS

  • SUGGESTED, THAT MAY ACTUALLY

  • HELP THE GOVERNMENT NOT HAVE TO

  • HELP AMERICANS OUT WHO AREN'T

  • ABLE TO HAVE JOBS OR WHO ARE IN

  • POVERTY AND AGAIN, THESE ARE THE

  • IDEAS THAT ARE COMING OUT NOW AS

  • WE MOVE INTO THIS NEW ERA OF

  • AUTOMATION AND TECHNOLOGY.

  • NEIL: YOU WOULD BUY IT, RIGHT?

  • >> LOOK, STYLISTICALLY THIS IS

  • NOT A SURPRISE TO ME.

  • IT'S NOT A SURPRISE TO ME THAT

  • ELON MUSK CHOSE THE ONE GUY ON

  • THE STAGE WHO CAN'T WEAR A TIE

  • AND IS FROM SILICON VALLEY.

  • BUT IMPORTANTLY, EVEN THOUGH I

  • MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH HIM --

NEIL: THIS IS THE BEST NEWS
