Toolkit

What is The Guarantee About? 

The Guarantee asks us to imagine an America where housing, health care, a college education, dignified work, family care, an inheritance, and an income floor are not only attainable by all but guaranteed, by our government, for everyone.

But isn’t this pie-in-the-sky thinking? Not by a long shot. As it stands, our current economic system is chock full of government-backed guarantees, from bailouts to bankruptcy protection that support the big business. So why can’t the same be true for the rest of us?

Author Natalie Foster, co-founder of the Economic Security Project, has had a front-row seat to the dramatic leaps forward in guarantees over the past decade, from student debt relief to the child tax credit expansion. Her vision for a new economic framework, detailed in The Guarantee, is rooted in real life experience, collaborations with some of today’s most important activists and visionaries, and a concrete sense of the policies that are possible—and ready to implement—in twenty-first-century America.

  1. Can you imagine an America where housing, health care, a college education, dignified work, family care, an inheritance, and an income floor are not only attainable by all but guaranteed, by our government, for everyone?This is not science fiction. The Guarantee Economy has gone from emphatically impossible to attainable in just the last few years. During the pandemic, we saw monthly checks to families, the cancellation of student debt, payments to help with rent, and the development and distribution of a free vaccine, to name a few. Not since the New Deal have we seen such a nimble and far-reaching response from the US government — and a serious cultural challenge to economic precarity and burnout.If you’re ready for a new way of thinking about the economic and social fabric of the country, don’t miss The Guarantee.

  1. Imagine a veteran who’s ended up on the streets. Her PTSD has made living close to others unbearable. Suddenly, our government decides to invest in leasing an empty motel, so now we can hand her the key to a place of her own, quiet and safe, with her own bathroom and kitchenette.Imagine a thirty-something who’s locked into a job with no potential for advancement. Weighed down by debt, they can’t take the risk of pursuing their own dream. The loan they took out to get a degree has turned out to be a ball and chain. Suddenly, our government erases their debt, and it’s as if their college education was free. The bandwidth and energy freed up enables them to launch their own business.This isn’t science fiction. These things happened, right here in the United States, and very recently. They are evidence of a great shift, the first real opportunity we’ve had in decades to re-think and re-tool America’s economic policy. These events were no miracle—instead, they were the result of many years of hard work by dedicated activists, working alongside academics, policymakers, technologists and others.Natalie Foster’s The Guarantee will further the conversation about how we can create an economy that works for all of us–and not just the wealthiest of us. It’s a future that we can choose and it’s the economy we deserve.If you’re ready for a new way of thinking about the economic and social fabric of the country, don’t miss this important and inspiring book.
