Amanda McCloud is a renegade economist with a plan to fix America's most pressing problem: income inequality. Her solution? Master-concubine arrangements (with a modern twist). Brimming with data, charts, and dramatic life-changing stories, this TED-inspired, multi-media talk proves that the rich aren't so different when they're forced to get close - real close - to the rest of us.
