Editorial Reviews

Review

"I admire Chris’s commitment to apply his talent, experience, and wealth to tackle some of our toughest problems." ―Bill Gates

"The American Dream is slipping away―too many people are working too hard and they’re still sinking, not even able to cover the basic costs of living. Fair Shot offers a new tool for economic mobility: a guaranteed income to all working people―even those whose work hasn’t been recognized or compensated with income before." ―Arianna Huffington

"If we are to be true to the principles of our nation’s founding, opportunity cannot be solely the province of the wealthy and well-connected. Yet the promise that if you work hard you can get ahead is broken for millions of Americans. As we strive to build a fairer, more inclusive country, Fair Shot is a very important read. These ideas must be part of the conversation as we consider how best to ensure the American Dream is available to all. This mission of securing the dream for all presents an urgency for every American; the strength and future of our nation depend on our success." ―Senator Cory Booker


"America was never a meritocracy, but the belief that it was fueled the American Dream and maintained social peace. Now the gig is up. Massive wealth is in the hands of a small number of people lucky enough to have been at the right places and times to grab it, while most Americans are going nowhere and can't even rely on a steady income. What’s the answer? In this thoughtful book, Chris Hughes―one of the lucky ones―explains why we need a guaranteed income, and how his life experiences have brought him to this conclusion. He makes a powerful and compelling argument that should be at the center of the national economic debate." ―Robert Reich, former US Secretary of Labor and author of the national bestseller Saving Capitalism

"...deeply felt and cogently argued...Hughes makes a powerful case that deserves a respectful hearing." ―The Financial Times

“...Fair Shot is a provocative, experientially grounded contribution to the debate around a once-outlandish idea that if it hasn’t found its time yet is at least having a moment.”―Stephen Phillips, San Francisco Chronicle

About the Author

Chris Hughes is the co-founder of the Economic Security Project, a network of policymakers, academics, and technologists working to end poverty and rebuild the middle class through a guaranteed income. He co-founded Facebook as a student at Harvard and later led Barack Obama’s digital organizing campaign for President. Hughes was the owner and publisher of The New Republic magazine from 2012 to 2016. He lives in New York’s Greenwich Village with his family.
