Oxfam’s Vice President Paul O’Brien visits us to discuss inequality and promote his book Power Switch: How We Can Reverse Extreme Inequality.
Paul O’Brien on inequality
This is a must-see interview. It was enlightening to hear Mr. O’Brien sensibly to discuss the economic issues that affect our personal economies. He is a Progressive who understand the nuances to accomplish the critical task at hand.
O’Brien understands where compromises are needed. More importantly, he understands how to message so that he gets good people to share their philanthropy without feeling threatened.
O’Brien understands the concept of inequality better than most. And he has encapsulated it in his new book. One hopes enough policymakers read the book and legislate with it in mind.
