Inequality for All, 3/20 @ 7pm,Third Thursday Cinema UUCA
Robert Reich, professor, author and former Sec. of Labor, describes the consolidation of wealth in the hands of a few and how it is threatening the foundation of our democracy. He poses the questions: what is a good society, and what role does this widening gap play in the deterioration of our nation’s economic health?
Using the vertical cables of a suspension bridge as a metaphor (and graphic) for income since the Great Depression, viewers see the era from 1947-1977 as the time when our nation enjoyed the greatest prosperity, expanding job opportunities, and affordable college. At either end of that peak are the market crashes of 1929 and 2008. Reich uses humor to demonstrate the link between a strong middle class and the general well being of our society.
A $3.00 donation is suggested for the evening, sponsored by the UUCA Peace Network, which includes refreshments and a moderated discussion.
