INEQUALITY FOR ALL (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Inequality for All—obscure, lack of clarity—establishes Robert Reich’s viewpoint on changing class structure in the United States. Robert Reich—sincere, well-educated, and obviously deeply interested in helping his audience—seems to need to strengthen his position by also addressing the technological changes that are contributing to that widening gap and give the population at large strategies on how best to reduce or close the gap. Higher education in the fields of AI and the newer technologies are good ways to stay afloat now. With more attention given on how to survive seems to be more productive and helpful than strong statements that inequality is going to be the ‘new’ America. Families need information on how best to restructure and mitigate the challenge of losing place and status due to reduction or stalemate of income that has not matched increase in prices. Education is often the answer to quickly move into new ages rather than choosing a stagnant/no growth approach to a rapidly changing societal challenge. AI and a new technological era are upon us. The opportunities are huge for those who are trained to take advantage of the change through training. Stating that the dam has broken does not seem as good a solution as rapidly moving to safer places for survival.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. This serves as an interesting intellectual watch. While a good debate usually considers both sides of an issue, this movie does not seem to do that and because it does not do that becomes a piece that can easily develop strife and contention, when that is most likely not its purpose, and serves to waste time on argument rather than on solution.
