Why the Billionaires Should Vaccinate the World

If we don’t vaccinate the world, more variants will arise. During the pandemic, billionaires saw their wealth rise at the fastest rate ever, by $5 trillion – in 18 months. If they were taxed on just their recent increased wealth, the billionaires could vaccinate the world.

Chuck Collins joins Thom Hartmann to discover a quick and fast way to spread jabs across the world. Chuck Collins is a Senior Scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies, Director of the Institute for Policy Studies’ Program on Inequality and the Common Good and the Co-Editor of Inequality.org / Author of the new book, The Wealth Hoarders
