Inequality for All

Robert Reich is the star of this documentary that examines the current enormous and ever widening income gap in the United States and the demise of our middle class. If you don’t know why the economy tanked in 2008, you must see this film and take anyone else who is uninformed about our economy with you. Reich is a Rhodes scholar who was the Sec. of Labor under Clinton, served in the Ford and Carter administrations, and has taught policy at Brandeis, Harvard and Berkeley, so when he talks about the economy and the policy choices that got us where we are today, he has more than a bit of gravitas. The strength of the documentary is that it isn’t a partisan screed, but an engaging lesson in how we came to be in this fix and what has to change for our country to have a functioning middle class again.
