‘Inequality for All’ film documentary to be screened Nov. 19

NEWPORT, R.I. – A film documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country’s widening economic gap will be screened at Salve Regina on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 6 p.m. in Bazarsky Lecture Hall, located in O’Hare Academic Center on Ochre Point Avenue.

Free and open to the public, ‘Inequality for All,” will be followed by a question and answer session facilitated by Joe Grady, senior fellow for public policy at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, and Kate Brewster, executive director of the Economic Progress Institute.

In the film, Reich distills the story through the lens of widening income inequality -- currently at historic highs -- and explores what effects this increasing gap has not only on the U.S. economy but American democracy itself. At the heart of the film is a simple proposition: What is a good society and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of the nation’s economic health?
