Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes: how a walk with Mark Zuckerberg changed my life, and why I want millions of Americans to get free cash
Chris Hughes is a Facebook cofounder, and author of the new book “Fair Shot.” Hughes worked at Facebook for just three years, but his 2% stake in the company made him $500 million. Hughes’ new book reflects on the incredible luck he had early in his career, and how it illustrates something wrong with the economy today. Part personal manifesto, part policy proposal, Hughes makes the case for a a guaranteed income in the US, with people in the highest income bracket – like him – footing the bill. His belief in the the project was borne out of his unexpected career path, and his evolving idea of what it means to be successful.
