ex-president and New York mayoral candidate Andrew Yang really loves to ride his electric scooter. He has been a huge proponent of micromobility in general, among other grand ambitions such as creating a universal basic income. He is also trying to launch a new American political party – a nearly impossible task in such an ideologically divided country.
This week at Gadget Lab, Lauren Goode talks with Andrew Yang at Micromobility America Conference in Richmond, California on his plans for democracy and how cities can become more smartphone-friendly.
Andrew Yang’s new book is called Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy.
