Mankato, Minn. – The 2013 documentary film, “Inequality for All,” will be shown from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13 in the center ballroom of Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Centennial Student Union.

The film is free and open to the public, and seating for 200 is available. An open discussion will follow the film.

In the documentary, former United States Secretary of Labor Robert Reich examines the nature, causes and effects of the massive and growing inequality of wealth distribution in America. Reich argues that this economic pattern is destroying the middle class and the hope of equal opportunity for all. He calls for the U.S. to institute the economic policies which produced high productivity, relative equality, and rapidly rising prosperity following World War II.

The film showing is sponsored by Minnesota State Mankato’s Kessel Peace Institute and Library Services.
