Inequality for All

Economic inequality has always been a key feature of capitalism.  But it is now becoming increasingly clear to many that today’s growing massive inequality threatens to destroy capitalism itself.  Former Clinton administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich presents a passionate argument on behalf of the middle class in his film “Inequality for All.”  He demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the US economy, threatening the viability of the 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 why the U.S. ranks a lowly 64th on the inequality scale among the world's nations—only slightly better than the Ivory Coast and Cameroon.  (A little gossip:  Reich vacationed in San Miguel last month and said he loved our town.) .

The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in the Documentary Competition section, and won a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Achievement in Filmmaking.
