Through the rocket ship rise of Facebook, Chris Hughes — one of the now-fabled roommates of Mark Zuckerberg who helped bring it to life — came to understand how a select few can become ultra-wealthy nearly overnight.

In this eye-opening IVY Ideas Night, we hear Chris’ story — from co-founding Facebook to leading Barack Obama’s digital organizing campaign for President — and his thoughts on how the same forces that made Facebook possible have made it harder for everyone else in America to make ends meet. Chris is the author of the new book, Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn, which tackles how to combat poverty and stabilize America’s middle class based on the idea of a guaranteed basic income.

This IVY Ideas Night is presented by smartwater®.
