“As a long-time proponent, Steven is one of the best at connecting universal basic income to democracy and personal dignity. We must stop confusing economic value and human value, and this book shows us a way to rewrite the rules of the 21st century economy. UBI, a Freedom Dividend, is our future. This book tells us why.”

Andrew Yang,
2020 Democratic candidate for president and New York Times bestselling author of The War on Normal People

“Steven Shafarman has been a leading advocate for basic income since the 1990s. This book reflects the great breadth and depth of his knowledge, with strategies and tactics to build the movement to achieve a basic income for everyone.”

Karl Widerquist,
former co-chair of BIEN, the Basic Income Earth Network; associate professor of philosophy at Georgetown University in Qatar

Our Future is a valuable and accessible presentation of the many advantages of a universal basic income, and contains a lot of information in one place. Congrats to Steven Shafarman for his clarity and passion.”

Jeff Madrick,
senior fellow at The Century Foundation and author of Invisible Americans: The Tragic Cost of Child Poverty

“Steven Shafarman’s insights on how as a nation we might provide some form of assured income to all Americans are poignant and pragmatic. In addition to the effective conversational style he uses to lay out his plan, he provides in a comprehensive appendix a guided tour of all key documents and historical developments that relate to this vital topic. He also offers a strategy to inspire effective political action.”

William J. Arnone,
chief executive officer, National Academy of Social Insurance
