Income inequality is a truth in America that few of us are willing to face head on. While a small minority of citizens are vastly wealthy, the rest of us are not so fortunate.
Chris Hughes is one of the founders of Facebook. The son of middle class parents, Hughes became part of the 1% when Facebook became one of the wealthiest companies in America.
This experience gave him an insight into how to fix the massive income inequality problem that we have in the United States today. In his new book, Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn, he writes about how problematic the issue truly is and proposes common sense solutions that will help to finally solve the problem.
I really liked this book. I liked it not only because of the down to earth manner that it is written, but also that the writer speaks from experience. The reader does not have to be an academic or an economist to understand how he proposes to bridge the gap between the 1% and the rest of America.
I recommend it.
