Virtual Author Program: David Wessel, author of “Only the Rich Can Play”
August 31, 2021-October 8, 2021
Date: Thursday Oct. 7, 2021
Time: 7pm
Location: Zoom (link TBA)
Event: David Wessel, author of “Only the Rich Can Play”
Activity: Online author conversation
Economist and New York Times bestselling author David Wessel tells the incredible tale of how Washington works-and why the rich keep getting richer. In “Only the Rich Can Play” Wessel describes the creation of Opportunity Zones in which the wealthy get tax breaks for putting money into left-behind communities and those areas in desperate need of investment. Yet without oversight provisions, the money went into projects that benefited the rich and areas that didn’t need economic spurring, such as rapidly gentrifying sections of the Bay Area and a Nevada industrial park that housed a Tesla plant. Places where such opportunity zones would have worked to the benefit of poor neighborhoods, such as Baltimore and Detroit, went underfunded.
