Van Jones and John Hope Bryant 'mix it up' at the Commonwealth Club. How The Poor Can Save Capitalism.

April, 2015


One of the most amazing stops on the HOPE 100-City Book Tour in 2014, for my now bestselling book How The Poor Can Save Capitalism: Rebuilding the Path to the Middle Class. The Solution for the 100%, was in San Francisco, California, with my friend Van Jones.  

In this strong-minded, passionate, interactive session between me and my friend and brother Van Jones (CNN's Cross Fire, Rebuild the Dream, Yes We Code), we tackle every social issue and taboo topic we come across.  The opening says everything, as Van Jones opens up suggesting I might be a tad crazy to come to San Francisco, defending 'capitalism.'  You have to see it for yourself.  

A special thank you to my friends at the The Commonwealth Club, and my partners at Bank of the West, who sponsored this session and Tour stop.  An extra special thank you to Michael Shepherd, Chairman and CEO, Bank of the West, who serves on our HOPE Global Board of Directors.

Let me and Van Jones (and the Commonwealth Club) know what you think. Leave your comments here or on the video site.  Okay, here we go...
