Live chat today with Robert Reich on 'Inequality for All' film

September 19, 2013|By Julie Makinen

Today's front page of the L.A. Times brought sobering economic news:

  • Boeing's shutting its Long Beach C-17 plant, and up to 3,000 people will lose their jobs.
  • Unemployment in L.A. County still stands at 9.9%.
  • The Federal Reserve says it is downgrading its forecast for U.S. economic growth to 2% to 2.3% this year, off from the 2.3% to 2.6% it had predicted in June.

Why is the recovery so anemic, more than four years after the Great Recession?

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich believes it has quite a bit to do with income inequality in America. He's made a new documentary about it, "Inequality for All," with director Jacob Kornblut.
