Good film, but didn't go far enough
15 October 2013 | by bobbobwhiteSee all my reviews

Liked that Reich documented the many problems faced by the 99% in trying make a living in a country dominated by the compromising effects of big money and very rich people. Charts and graphs galore showed vividly the striking connections between lowered taxes and rich power..........the deception of jobs creator and trickle down phony baloney, neo-con babble..........big business offshore jobs and robots here eliminating American jobs.......the effects of the decline in unions, and much, much more serious proof of gross and purposeful social inequality encouraged by many in our gov't and businesses.

As background and qualifications, Reich detailed his genetic condition that led to his short stature, told us about his upbringing and education, and told more about his college and gov't jobs through the years. He is an engaging, friendly and yet very serious man without being pushy, and is stone serious about his mission for better equality. But, IMO, that will be a very difficult thing to achieve under current social conditions in America, and he will have to have better and more effective suggestions to his students and to viewers than to "go out and make a difference". How about every student in his class pledging to encourage, develop and uplift American workers when these students in writing to become influential managers and bosses in the quest for more equality? To bring more jobs back home? To not be a part of the inequality problem in all of society but a big part of its solution? Run for political office and do something better for America than just get rich taking PAC bribes? And, never, ever forget these hard days in America for the 99% that were caused by the 1%.

I consider this film to be Part I. There has to be more on specific solutions after the complaining and pointing fingers are worn out. Influentials have to actually do something specific and accountable to change and help this crisis beyond lip service. This film was a preamble of what must be done later.
