Born on Third Base – Author Talk with Chuck Collins

December 13, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

born-on-third-base-chuckWith the heart of an agitator and the soul of a storyteller, 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: A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good, Collins calls for an end to class war, 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.

Chuck Collins Born on Third Base was selected by Publishers Weekly as a Top 10 book in Business and Economics.

Co-Sponsered by Sojourners Magazine and the Institute for Policy Studies.
