BORN ON THIRD BASE
A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good
Chuck Collins
Chelsea Green Publishing, 2016

With the soul of a storyteller and the heart of an agitator, inequality expert Chuck Collins upends our assumptions about America's deep wealth divide — a divide that, for the first time in recent history, locks the nation's youth into a future defined by their class and wealth at birth, limits our ability to address crises like climate change, and creates a world that no one, not even the rich, will ultimately want to live in. In Born on Third Base, Colllins calls for an end to class war, busts the myths that define our views of rich and poor and offers bold new solutions for bridging the economic divide and reengaging the wealthy in rebuilding communities for a resilient future.
