How and why rebuilding an equitable economy is essential to our ability to withstand the threats of the 21st Century.
In this talk, inequality expert Chuck Collins lays out the economic, environmental, and social threats confronting modern society and explains why confronting wealth disparity is an essential aspect of what we must do to prepare. Much of the program is solution oriented, looking at the remedies and possibilities for change. Collins identifies “game changing” campaigns that have the potential to engage the broader public and move us toward a shared prosperity economy.
