The former US Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich offers an elegant and witty explanation of the current financial and moral crisis, tracing its roots to income inequality.
Political perturbations, including the current surge in populist, xenophobic and nationalist rhetoric, are closely connected to our financial wellbeing. In this film, economist and idealist, former US Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich looks into the economic roots of the global crisis.
Jacob Kornbluth’s Inequality for All is a witty and accessible analysis of things one wouldn’t normally laugh about—global inequality, Government’s secret deals with business and the attack on middle class. The film, which premiered at Sundance, explains how we have ended up in a miserable 2016 and encourages us to take action.
Inequality for All is screened as part of the Money thematic block of the NOW. Constructing Contemporaneity festival, organised by Garage, Colta.ru and The Heinrich Böll Foundation. The screening will be followed by a discussion with economist and sociologist Guy Standing, moderated by Mikhail Ratgauz.
