How Inequality is Wrecking the World: Hampshire College Alum Chuck Collins on His New Book

Chuck Collins is a community organizer who works at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC.  He has a new book called 99 to 1–How Wealth Inequality is Wrecking the World and What We Can Do About It. The slim volume delves into previous times in U.S. history when income discrepancy was great–like the so called gilded age in the late 19th century and what is different about today’s economic downturn. Collins — a Hampshire College Alum — explains he expects conservatives to respond to his conclusion that republican-supported  fiscal and social policies are to blame.
