Synopsis


Inequality for All
Robert Reich is an economist, author, and educator who was U.S. Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton and who teaches a course on wealth and poverty at the University of California Berkeley. Since the mid-1980s, Reich has been outspoken on the issue of the growing divide between America's rich and poor; in his book Aftershock, Reich presents his argument that this gulf is slowly but surely wiping out the middle class, and will lead to an economic catastrophe if left unchecked. Filmmaker Jacob Kornbluth presents a powerful look at Reich and his theories in the documentary Inequality for All; featuring footage from Reich's lectures to students as well as interviews with the author and his conversations with Americans from many walks of life, the film provides disturbing evidence of the roles stagnating wages, growing personal debt, an economy based on consumer spending, and the decline of manufacturing are playing in the weakening of the American economy. Inequality for All received its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Inequality for all is an eye opening look at how divided our society has become. It shows how the wealth in America is not for all but for a handful of people, the 1%. It shows how a strong middle class can make an economy the strongest and how history keeps repeating itself for people to get why we end up in depressions. Its a sad truth but there is no equality among Americans.
