Damon Dunn: Punting on Poverty

Damon Dunn is a former Stanford and NFL football player turned successful entrepreneur and fellow in business and economics at the Pacific Research Institute. He is the author of the new book, Punting Poverty: Breaking the Chains of Welfare. Damon joins Carol Roth to discuss why welfare creates the “Paradox of Poverty”, solutions to building wealth and success for those struggling and why a culture of low expectations reinforces the problems it attempts to solve.

Plus, a “Now You Know” segment on both NFL pay AND a change between political parties.

Dunn is also a successful real estate developer, investor and businessman and was a Hoover Institution fellow from 2011-13. He is the Founder and Managing Member of Lagunita Industries, LLC, a company that acquires and grows privately-held businesses
