Inequality for All

by Jacob Kornbluth Documentary Competition

„Who looks after the American worker? – The answer is: Nobody“. Robert Reich knows how to provoke. The Berkeley professor and former Secretary of Labor under President Clinton stands at the front of a packed auditorium relating the reasons behind the Occupy movement. With his books and lectures, this critical yet optimistic intellectual has made it his goal over the past few decades to sensitise society to the threats on democracy caused by economic policy. By comparing the 1928 crisis with the 2008 crisis, he discusses the connection between a huge poor/rich income gap and economic collapse, and makes it perfectly clear: No functioning economy without the middle class – and we are the middle class. Or perhaps not? In INEQUALITY FOR ALL, we follow Reich’s skilfully prepared arguments and hear the opinions of others: Such as those from the highest income sector, as well as the other 99 percent.
