Chris Hughes - Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Hughes grew up in North Carolina in a family of modest means. Scholarships took him to an elite boarding school, then to Harvard, where he met Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz. The three founded Facebook and became rich nearly overnight. They couldn’t have planned this, and Hughes attributes his success in large part to good luck. He also recognizes chance as a factor in what keeps others poor. Drawing on his personal experience and his work with the Economic Security Project, which he co-founded, Hughes argues that the best tool for ending poverty and rebuilding the middle class is a guaranteed income for the working poor, paid for by the wealthiest 1%.
