Inequality For All

(USA, 2013, 89 mins, DCP)
Director:
FEATURING Robert Reich

Showtimes

It’s no secret: the rich are getting richer and the rest of us are working harder, longer hours for less reward (that is, if we’re lucky enough to be in work). Economist Robert Reich explains why the free market is a misnomer, how late capitalism has jumped the tracks, and what we should do about it in this passionate, lucid and compelling state of the nation address.

About Robert Reich

If you have followed US politics with even cursory interest over the past four decades, you will almost certainly have come across the economist Robert Reich. He served in the Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter administrations before Bill Clinton appointed him Secretary of Labor 1993-1997. Since then he’s appeared regularly across the media as a commentator on the economic scene. He’s also the author of some 14 books, and Professor of Public Policy at Berkeley.

"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 in ’Inequality for All." Kenneth Turan, LA Times

"An often essential primer." Sam Adams, Time Out New York
