Chuck Collins on Tackling Inequality
November 13, 2016
The great grandson of meatpacker Oscar Mayer, inequality expert, activist and author of Born on Third Base: A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good tackles the question: Does anyone, including the one percent, really want to live in a society plagued by economic apartheid?
Born into the one percent himself, Collins gave away his inheritance at the age of 26, and has spent the next three decades mobilizing against inequality. As inequality grabs headlines, steals the show in presidential debates, and drives deep divides between the haves and have nots in America, class war brews. Chuck Collins uses his perspective from both sides of the divide to deliver a new narrative.
