"Born on Third Base" featuring Chuck Collins
Chuck Collins joins us this week as he releases his new book Born on Third Base: A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good. Collins, a descendant of the famous meat packer Oscar Meyer, talks about his early years in the Detroit-suburb of Bloomsfield, Michigan and his gradual understanding of privilege and inherited wealth. He also talks about the effects of the Estate Tax, his life "after inherited wealth" and the many other forms of capital that contribute to the racial wealth divide today.
