The Progressive Presents: Chuck Collins, author of THE WEALTH HOARDERS
The Progressive and A Room of One's Own present a book release event with author Chuck Collins for his new book The Wealth Hoarders: How Billionaires Spend Millions to Hide Trillions. Chuck will be in conversation with Norman Stockwell, publisher of The Progressive.
In The Wealth Hoarders, inequality expert Chuck Collins, who himself inherited a fortune, interviews the leading players and gives a unique insider account of how this industry is doing everything it can to create and entrench hereditary dynasties of wealth and power. He exposes the inner workings of these “agents of inequality”, showing how they deploy anonymous shell companies, family offices, offshore accounts, opaque trusts, and sham transactions to ensure the world’s richest pay next to no tax. He ends by outlining a robust set of policies that democratic nations can implement to shut down the Wealth Defence Industry for good. This shocking exposé of the insidious machinery of inequality is essential reading for anyone wanting the inside story of our age of plutocratic plunder and stashed cash.
Chuck Collins is the Director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies, where he co- edits Inequality.org.
