Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Reich ties together his talking points with a reasonable-sounding analysis and an unassuming warmth sometimes absent from documentaries charting America's economic woes.
Fresh: Robert Reich, a secretary of labor under President Clinton, leads us through a sharp-eyed essay-meditation on the rising trend of income inequality.
Fresh: 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."
Fresh: Animated charts and graphs, on-the-road interludes and humorous asides designed to show that the speaker isn't too dislikably severe about the crisis that threatens Life As We Know It.
See it, then look back over the last 30 years
I saw this in the theatre, so glad that it’s now available on iTunes.
Unlike some other reviewers, since I have seen it, I think it presents economic statistics in a way that’s easy to follow. Reich uses economic data from the same sources as others — Census, Federal Reserve, Journal of Economics, etc. He doesn’t advocate a solution, but he does explore a trend that anyone over 30 has seen and lived, while observing a very broad range of factors that contribute to a growing gap in opportunity and standard of living in the United States.
So, from someone who saw it — rent it and decide for yourself.
With a topic this politically charged, I'm not surprised at the negative reviews. I'd say, watch it and make up your own mind. I thought it was very informative.
Inequality for All
Karl Marx had the same angst while trying to promote communisim. True equality does not exist in human nature....or any other nature for that matter.
