Ideas Night with Chris Hughes | Presented by smartwater

Through the rocket ship rise of Facebook, Chris Hughes — one of the now-fabled roommates who helped bring it to life — came to understand how a select few can become ultra-wealthy nearly overnight. Join us in an incredible IVY Ideas Night, presented by smartwater, to hear his story, as we learn How to

Combat Income Inequality & Stabilize America’s Middle Class.

Chris believes that the same forces that made Facebook possible have made it harder for everyone else in America to make ends meet. He has spent the past few years traveling the world and mining data with economists to arrive at the conclusion that a guaranteed basic income is the most powerful tool we have to combat poverty and stabilize America’s middle class. Throughout this fascinating discussion, Chris will expand on these insights and share with us lessons learned from his personal journey at Facebook. Before and after, we’ll enjoy wine, light bites, and conversation, and will have the chance to purchase signed copies of his latest book, Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn to continue grappling with his ideas long after the night is over. Hope to see you there!
