When faced with generational inequality and a wealth gap that just gets bigger and bigger, the most important way to combat all of it is to just get started.

“It’s not just about money. It’s about the economy,” said Bishop T.D. Jakes, the pastor, author and filmmaker who led a panel discussion for Essence Festival’s first-ever Global Black Economic Forum.

Jakes was joined by Chase Consumer Banking CEO Thasunda Brown Duckett and Ram Palaniappan, the founder of Earnin, an app that allows workers to access the money they make as soon as they clock out of work every day.
