Ellis Carr authors chapter in "The Future of Building Wealth"

The Future of Building Wealth: Ellis Carr and Others Contribute Essays on Ideas to Build Wealth—for Everyone

There was considerable evidence, even before the COVID-19 pandemic began, that the United States was marking levels of income and wealth inequality unseen for a century, all during the longest economic expansion in modern history. The stark economic inequalities that individuals and families in our nation are experiencing have been exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic. 

 

The persistence and depth of income and wealth inequality have prompted serious national reflection on the fairness and sustainability of our current policies and systems.

 

Our President and CEO Ellis Carr joined with other leaders to contribute a chapter to “The Future of Building Wealth: Brief Essays on the Best Ideas to Build Wealth—for Everyone,” a new and important book discussing promising and best practices for addressing the widening wealth gaps in our society and building power for underestimated communities.
