How Unequal Can America Get Before We Snap?

I had the pleasure of attending this lecture given by former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich on the UC Berkeley campus on May 9, 2005.

Reich outlines the startling details of inequality of income, wealth and opportunity in the United States and asks, what will happen if these trends continue?

Eight years later, inequality has only gotten worse. One would imagine, or at least hope, that systemic inequality is unsustainable. But when will it become unbearable, unacceptable?
