Keynes for Dummies

Berkeley professor Robert Reich was Secretary of Labour during the Clinton administration, but quickly found his Keynesian ideas unpopular. Since he left the White House, social and economical inequality has exploded in the US. We follow the charming little man on an extremely entertaining and engaging crusade to make US economy more egalitarian and thus also healthy. In words that we can all grasp he explains how the widening gap in the long run will harm the pockets both of the working and the capitalist class – as well as ruin democracy.
