Foremost expert on economics, former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, best-selling author of thirteen books, current Chancellor’s Professor of Public Polity at UC Berkeley, and Senior Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies, Robert Reich, will Skype with the audience right after the screening of his acclaimed feature documentary, Inequality for All.

Time Magazine named Reich one of the ten most effective cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century. His best selling books include Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future, The Work of Nations, Locked in the Cabinet (a memoir of his four years as Secretary of Labor); his latest, Beyond Outrage, is now available in paperback. He is also founding editor (in 1990) of The American Prospect, a bimonthly print and online political magazine based in Washington, D.C., and chairman of Common Cause, a nonprofit, nonpartisan citizen’s lobbying organization that promotes open, honest and accountable government.

This event is free and open to everyone!

This event was a great success. Many students, faculty members, administrators and members of the community saw the film and participated in the follow-up conversation facilitated by Dr. Tim Kelly, a faculty member in WVC’s History Department.
