Part 3

Then finally we speak about the growing inequality in America that Mitt Romney’s biggest donor and former partner at Bain Capital says is a sign that our economy is working and that a little more inequality would be good for the 99%.  Chuck Collins, the Co-founder with Bill Gates Sr. of Wealth for the Common Good joins us. He has a new book “99 to 1: How Wealth Inequality is Wrecking the World and What we can do About It”.
