A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, "Inequality For All" features former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. Reich, an American economist, author, and professor, explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. A screening of the 85-minute film will be followed by a discussion led by the U-M Community Scholars Program, cosponsors of this event. "Inequality For All" is not rated.
