The University of Iowa Public Policy Center proudly presents a free screening of Robert Reich’s “Inequality for All” on Tuesday, November 19, 7:00 p.m, at MacBride Hall Auditorium on the Pentacrest.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.  Donations of non-perishable food, paper products or baby items are requested for The Crisis Center of Johnson County.

“Inequality for All” examines the widening income inequality in the United States, presented by Robert Reich – an American economist, author and professor at Harvard and Berkeley, and U.S. Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton.

At the heart of the film is a simple proposition: What is a good society and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of the nation’s economic health?
