Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich explains in colorful detail how the gap in income and wealth has grown so vast in the United States and warns of consequences for democracy if this fundamental divide is not addressed. He references his new Netflix documentary, "Saving Capitalism," as he describes the frustration of voters who see the system as rigged against them. In this conversation with Henry E. Brady, dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, Reich ends with signs of optimism, noting that the rise in political engagement around the country is critical to enacting reforms that will save capitalism for the many, not just the few.
