Chuck Collins: Born on Third Base

FRI, OCT 21, 2016 (00:00)

With the heart of an agitator and the soul of a storyteller, JP resident and inequality expert Chuck Collins upends our assumptions about America’s deep wealth divide—one that, for the first time in recent history, locks the nation’s youth into a future defined by their class and wealth at birth; limits our ability to address crises like climate change; and creates a world that no one, not even the rich, will ultimately want to live in.

In Born on Third Base, Collins—once destined to inherit wealth originated with his great-grandfather's Oscar Mayer food corporation—busts the myths that define our views of rich and poor, and offers bold new solutions for bridging the economic divide and re-engaging the wealthy in rebuilding communities for a resilient future.
