"The Good Rich and What They Cost Us"

Robert Dalzell

About the Program

Robert Dalzell looks at the disconnect between our love for democracy and equality, and our fascination with the super-rich.  He argues that even the "good rich," those who do good things with their enormous wealth, aren't necessarily good for our society.  In the book, Prof. Dalzell profiles George Washington, John Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, and Oprah Winfrey.  He spoke at The Moorings Club in Vero Beach, Florida.
