Robert Reich’s new documentary explains why America’s widening income gap is a threat — not only to the viability of our workforce — but also to the foundations of our democracy. Inequality for All opens in theaters across the country on Sept. 27, 2013.

The film, directed by Jacob Kornbluth, features Reich — an economic analyst and former Clinton cabinet member — who uses humor and facts to explain why the consolidation of wealth into the hands of few affects all Americans today.

Of all developed nations today, the United States has the most unequal distribution of income and wealth, by far.

What’s happening to the American middle class, and why do we care?

Higher living costs, combined with stagnating wages, explain why the middle class is working harder and harder and harder and going nowhere fast.

    I watched your informative interview with Robert Reich and his new movie. I think what he left out was the idea and belief corporations have that globalization is really about a fight for their existence – who ever rules globally continues to exist otherwise you will die as a corporation.
