***1/2 (three-and-a-half stars)

If all college lecturers were as engaging and relatable as Robert Reich, the world would be filled with Rhodes scholars. The diminuitive Reich breaks down the causes of income inequality -- why the super-rich make exponentially more money than the middle-class than at any time in American history -- and why it's a bad thing for the economy and democracy. Director Jacob Kornbluth provides lively charts and graphs to illuminate Reich's points, and unearths personal stories from middle-class strivers and from Reich himself. Except for a few quibbles in the argument (most of them about false equivalencies between the left and right), Reich's case that the middle class are the real "job creators" is sharply reasoned and long overdue.
