America’s Rich and Poor Divide

June 15, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Runway Incubator

1355 Market Street #488 , San Francisco, CA

How has the gap between the rich and the poor become so historically wide? How large is this problem and how did we get here? Have government policies to help low income families through wealth redistribution or negative income tax proposals worked, or have they, in fact, hurt those whom they were supposed to help? How does the growth in federal regulations over the past half century correlate with the decline of startup companies and new jobs? What are some alternative solutions? How does all this affect jobs and long-term economic growth in California and across America?

Please Join join us for our premier America’s Future Foundation debate sponsored by the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation on America’s wealth disparity in downtown San Francisco on Monday, June 15th from 6:00 to 8:00pm PT at Runway, located at 1355 Market St. #488 San Francisco CA, 94103 (two blocks from the Civic Center BART station on Market St. between 9th and 10th street).
