Virtual Event—Justin Farrell: Billionaire Wilderness

Sponsored by Bill Lane Center for the American West

Billionaire Wilderness takes you inside the exclusive world of

the ultra-wealthy, showing how today’s richest people are using the natural environment to solve the existential dilemmas they face.
Justin Farrell spent five years in Teton County, Wyoming, the richest county in the United States, and a community where income inequality is the worst in the nation. He conducted hundreds of in-depth interviews, gaining unprecedented access to tech CEOs, Wall Street financiers, oil magnates, and other prominent figures in business and politics. He also talked with the rural poor who live among the ultra-wealthy and often work for them. The result is a penetrating account of the far-reaching consequences of the massive accrual of wealth, and an eye-opening and sometimes troubling portrait of a changing American West where romanticizing rural poverty and conserving nature can be lucrative—socially as well as financially.

Wednesday, May 6, 2020 | 2:30 – 3:30 pm  RSVP for this even
