Billionaire Wilderness

Mountain Money spends time with with Justin Ferrell, author of Billionaire Wilderness: The Ultra-Wealthy and the Remaking of the American West. Ferell spent a number of years exploring Teton County Wyoming, a county known for its rugged natural beauty, amazing skiing and, increasingly, massive wealth inequality.  Sound familiar?  Our discussion with the author will dive deep into understanding of money moving to the West, the impact of an increasing population of the ultra wealthy and the issue of whether wealth can solve the problems wealth creates.
