INEQUALITY FOR ALL By Robert Reich, directed by Jacob Kornbluth
This film comes to us from Robert Reich, a political commentator, economist, professor and author. In this 2013 documentary Reich examines the widening income inequality in the United States and explores what effects this increasing gap has not only on U.S. economy but also American democracy itself. Robert Reich has served in three administrations, that of Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. He served as Secretary of Labor for Bill Clinton from 1993-1997. He is currently the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at University of California, Berkeley, teaching a course entitled, “Wealth and Poverty”. This film is full of information communicated in an accessible manner and with a bit of gentle humor. For those of us who are concerned about the distortion of our democracy that our wealth imbalance has wrought and those of us who care about the many among us who struggle to make ends meet this is a “must see” film.
Discussion, as always, follows the viewing of the film.
