Inequality For All

A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, Inequality for All features Robert Reich—professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member—as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man who’s overcome a great deal of personal adversity and whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this Inconvenient Truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.

85 minutes. Rated PG. Film starts at 7:00 PM.

AFTER FILM: Two choices- stay for the panel discussion following film in the auditorium or walk to Starbucks to discuss film among ourselves.  I'll be leading a group to the coffee shop.

    Loved the substantive post-film discussion about the daunting political, social, and economic issues raised. While there are no easy answers, engaging the issues is critical. I think that if Reich had been able to witness the panel and our Meetup group discussion, he would have been pleased. Thanks so much, Scott and all! This was a great evening.

    Really want to see this, but we have a prior engagement. I think economics and philosophy should be taught in kindergarten! Ok, maybe 1st grade...

    Looking forward to seeing if the film is an advocacy for the middle class or an envy of others
