Book talk: Born on Third Base: A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good
With author Chuck Collins. Born into the “one percent,” Collins gave away his inheritance at 26 and spent the next three decades mobilizing against inequality. In this book, he uses his perspective from both sides of the traditional class warfare divide to look for new, transcendent ways forward. He invites the wealthy to come back home by investing themselves and their wealth in struggling communities and asks the non-wealthy to build alliances with the one percent and others at the top of the wealth ladder.
