The Freedom Dividend

With $1,000 given each month to every American adult, see how this would impact your town.


The Freedom Dividend is a universal basic income, proposed by Andrew Yang, a candidate for President in the 2020 Democratic Primary.

This form of basic income would be a set of guaranteed payments of $1,000 per month, or $12,000 per year, to all U.S. citizens over the age of 18. Yes, that means you and everyone you know would get $1,000/month every month from the U.S. government, no questions asked.

This will create a massive economic stimulus for small towns, because much of this money will be spent locally.

Learn more about how this was calculated.


The Freedom Dividend would positively transform society and virtually eliminate U.S. household poverty.

Increases Purchasing Power

Designed to increase the purchasing power of 94% of Americans, it frees businesses from worrying about the next driver of consumer spending.

Provides Economic Relief

Economic cushion for a tumultuous wave of job destruction in our current Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Restores Focus On Priorities

Direct economic relief frees us from our daily grind to support bigger issues, such as the environment.
