Robert Reich in person

“This movie is critically important. It exposes the heart of our economic problem. Something that’s been getting worse and worse for over 30 years. Widening inequality.”

The Blum Center for Developing Economies sponsored on May 19th the screening of the movie Inequality for All, an impressive documentary that reflects the reality of America’s economy and its growing income inequality. After the screening Bob Reich stayed for a Q&A session.

About Robert B. Reich and Inequality for All

Robert B. Reich is the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley and the 22nd Secretary of Labor under the Clinton administration. In 2008, Time magazine named him one of the ten most effective cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century. Among his prodigious accomplishments under the Clinton administration were raising the federal minimum wage, implementing the Retirement Protection Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Moreover, during his tenure, he spearheaded a crackdown on sweatshop labor.

Along with his extensive successes in the realm of public policy, he has written thirteen books on U.S. labor and the global economy including the bestsellers, Aftershock and The Work of Nations. He is the co-founding editor at The American Prospect magazine. His concern for the American worker and poverty in the United States is the focus of the 2013 documentary, Inequality for All directed by award-winning director Jacob Kornbluth.

In Inequality for All, Robert Reich directly takes aim at the shame of America’s economy; its immense and growing income inequality between the have and the have-nots. Cutting out the policymakers in Washington and dense economic jargon, Reich brings to light the disheartening and provocative data on the economic health of the American people to the silver-screen.
