In this week's interview, correspondent Tom Teicher talks with Justin Farrell about environmentalism and region-based wealth inequality. Farrell explores the case of Teton county, Wyoming, the richest county per capita in the US, and the place with the largest gap between rich and poor. Recalling interviews with the ultra-wealthy and the working poor of the region, Farrell examines the efficacy of environmental philanthropy and explores how the rich see themselves—how they respond to social stigmas, anxiety of social status, inauthenticity, and guilt. Farrell investigates the psychology of the ultra-wealthy in rural America, delving into questions of equality, opportunity, ethical charity, and social obligation.
