The Guarantee: Inside the Fight for America's Next Economy

On this edition of Your Call, Natalie Foster discusses her new book, "The Guarantee: Inside the Fight for America's Next Economy."

Foster asks readers to imagine a country 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."

She writes, "Under the Guarantee Framework, our government, the government of the wealthiest country on earth, takes responsibility for ensuring that every American’s basic needs are met."
