Chuck Collins: A One Percenter For The Ninety Nine

Town Hall Seattle says
These days, financial inequality seems to be growing in America. The wealthy wield power and advantage, wittingly or not, to keep the system operating in their favor, while retreating into enclaves that separate them from the poor and working class. Resentment toward these exclusive circles is growing. It is time to think differently, says longtime inequality expert and activist Chuck Collins. Born into wealth, Collins gave away his inheritance at age 26 and has spent the last three decades mobilizing against inequality. He uses his perspective from both sides of the divide to deliver a new narrative.

Collins shares stories that explore the roots of advantage, show how taxpayers subsidize the wealthy, and reveal how charity, used incorrectly, can actually reinforce extreme inequality. He offers a variety of national and local solutions designed to challenge inequality, respond to climate change and offer a fresh take on one of our most intransigent problems.
