Facebook’s Chris Hughes in Conversation with Dorian T. Warren: Luck, Fortune and Combatting Income Inequality

He grew up in a small town in North Carolina. His parents were people of modest means, but he was accepted into an elite boarding school and then Harvard, both on scholarship. There, he met Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz and became one of the co-founders of Facebook. Through the rocket ship rise of Facebook, Hughes came to understand how a select few can become ultra-wealthy nearly overnight, making it hard for the average person to make ends meet. To remedy the situation, Chris believes that a no strings attached, guaranteed income for working people, paid for by the 1%, will help combat poverty and stabilize the middle class. Join him to hear about his newest book, Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn, and his bold take on how we earn in modern America, how we can combat income inequality, and ultimately, how we can give everyone a fair shot.
