Here’s is an attractive, short.animated video narrated by Robert Reich for the launch of the Economic Policy Institute’s exciting new interactive website on inequality in the United States. The text below is from the video description on Youtube.
Inequality is real, it’s personal, it’s expensive and it was created. Today, 1% of Americans are taking home nearly 20% of the country’s total income and own nearly 35% of the country’s wealth. This didn’t happen by accident. As former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich explains, we allowed it to happen.
We can’t have a prosperous economy without a strong and prosperous middle class. Inequality can be fixed. So, let’s fix it.
