Baby bonds would provide every baby born in the United States with some amount of money at birth. This money would go into an account that the child can get when they are 18 years old. Children from families with income close to the poverty level would get larger amounts than children from families that are higher-income. The money would grow over time and could be used for school, a down payment, or a business start-up.
