The reckoning taking place in the United States is both historic and undeniable. One of the drivers of this conversation revolves around the racial wealth gap in the U.S. Understanding the causes behind this gap is essential to achieving racial progress in the United States, but how can we broaden this understanding to address structural barriers to economic equity in least developed countries?

Peter Lupoff, CEO of Net Impact, a mission-driven organization with 150,000 members, is our guest for Episode 17 of Capital Musings. He provides his views on the nature of the U.S.'s racial wealth gap and how it speaks to the importance of impact investment, both domestically and internationally.
