Move to Amend - Santa Barbara is hosting a special preview of the new film INEQUALITY FOR ALL.
All Americans who care about our country should see this movie. It exposes the heart of our economic problems: the widening gap between rich and poor.
Synopsis: In the wake of the U.S. economic crisis, the gap between the rich and the poor has gained increasing public awareness. Our narrator and guide, UC Berkeley professor and noted economic policy expert Robert Reich, helps us understand how the extreme inequality we are now facing has roots in economic and policy changes that began over 30 years ago. Through newly shot and archival footage, as well as innovative graphics, we learn how we got here and where we are headed if we don’t act soon. Punctuated by moments that allow us to know Reich personally, this movie reveals his unwavering passion to make the American dream possible for everyone.
The 400 richest Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 150 million combined. Robert Reich sees this disparity as a threat to democracy. INEQUALITY FOR ALL explains why. Rather than vilifying the rich, INEQUALITY FOR ALL investigates how policy changes have stacked the deck against the middle class.
