TEDx Talk: Is inherited wealth a powerful tool or a destructive influence?

Estimated 12 Minute Read & Watch Time

A new way to think about inheritance.


Is inherited wealth a powerful tool or a destructive influence? David York thinks it can be both, depending on how you define and use it. In this thought-provoking talk, he argues that we need to stop envisioning intergenerational wealth transfers in purely financial terms and start thinking about them as opportunities to share values and connections to the next generation.


This talk was presented at TEDxSaltLakeCity.
