When Nick Hanauer was just 7, his father made sure he and his brother knew every aspect of the family business. Today, Hanauer is a self-made billionaire. Hanauer’s business acumen has allowed him to become one of the wealthiest Americans — the so-called 1 percent — but it has also made him an unlikely champion of the poor and a passionate advocate for the advancement of economic equality in the U.S.
Nick Hanauer is a pretty insightful billionaire. Too bad there aren’t more like him.
