Season #2

In this episode, we'll be joined by esteemed guests, including Dr. William Sandy Darity, a leading expert on wealth inequality, Alejandra Montoya Boyer, the Director of Policy at Prosperity Now, Sergio C. Muñoz, a Mexican banker with a passion for broadcasting, and Abigail Golden VaZquez, a senior fellow at Prosperity Now who has been driving awareness of Latino contributions to the American economy.

Together, we'll explore the concept of baby bonds as a means to address wealth disparities, particularly within marginalized communities. We'll discuss the potential impact of these bonds and how they can be used to create a more equitable society.

We'll also delve into the current initiatives being proposed, such as the American Opportunity Accounts Act, which has gained traction with Senator Cory Booker and aims to provide newborns with trust accounts calibrated to their family's net worth.

Join us as we unravel the complexities of wealth inequality and learn how targeted policies like baby bonds can be a stepping stone towards a fairer and more inclusive future.
