Inequality For All is a feature documentary that puts a historic lens on the widening income gap in the United States and examines its implications for the health of the American economy. Economist Robert Reich is featured in the film in which he presents an engaging argument that may be readily incorporated into a social studies or US history curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, Inequality For All will challenge students to analyze the human impact of 20th century political and economic policy and facilitate further research into related topics such as globalization, tax policy and the role of the state in creating a healthy middle class.

Terrific resource for an approachable film - and an enigmatic subject in Mr. Reich. These media literacy resources work across lots of different films and platforms, too.

This is a great lesson for a high school history or social studies class.
