Saving Capitalism

Year: 2017
Studio: Netflix
Director: Jacob Kornbluth
Cast: Robert Reich

An update on Jacob Kornbluth's earlier documentary about the work of Robert Reich, former Labor Secretaray under President Clinton.

Instead of looking exclusively at the abysmal disparity between rich and poor, Reich (again based on the information in one of his books) travels America talking to people from all walks of life about how the US economy is rigged in favour of the rich, and what everybody thinks can be done.

It's worth watching and it's an urgent call, but it's also a little bit depressing – it'll remind you just as much about how things have not only never changed since the first proto-human amassed more survival resources than the family in the next cave, they likely never will.
