Four hundred people own half of the total assets of the United States. If you are not one of them, you may want to see this film. Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor and current professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley, illustrates how the rich have gotten richer and the rest of us haven't. Director Jacob Kornbluth takes complex economic ideas and explains how they relate to the quality of everyday life as lived by most ordinary people, and includes interviews with everyone from a Costco check-out clerk to Nick Hanauer, a Seattle billionaire who believes that his taxes should go up. Incisive, accessible, and even funny, Inequality for All is a landmark documentary on the defining issue of our time.
"Smart, funny and articulate, Robert Reich is the university professor we all wish we'd had. He's so accessible and entertaining he takes a subject that sounds soporific and makes it come alive like you wouldn't believe." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
