Add comment on:VIDEO: Robert Reich on "Inequality for All"
Economics is not an immutable unchangeable fate but a human system where changing the rules changes outcomes. Capitalism was often saved from its excesses. As progressive taxation and anti-monopoly laws took power from the robber barons in 1901, restoring Glass-Steagle, raising the minimum wage, massive job creation, reducing or cancelling tuitions, community centers and free Internet books are needed today. We do not have equality of opportunity in school, tax laws, and laws tilted to shareholders. When do you reach the point when inequality is too much?
