Robert Reich Makes His UC Berkeley Course on Wealth and Inequality in America Available on Facebook

Robert B. Reich served as Sec­re­tary of Labor under Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton and was lat­er named one of the 10 most effec­tive cab­i­net sec­re­taries of the 20th cen­tu­ry by TIME Mag­a­zine. Nowa­days, Reich teach­es cours­es on pub­lic pol­i­cy at UC Berke­ley, and uses his pop­u­lar Face­book page to dis­cuss pol­i­cy ques­tions with a much broad­er audi­ence. So here’s the next the log­i­cal step: This semes­ter, Reich is teach­ing a Berke­ley course on wealth and inequal­i­ty in Amer­i­ca, and he’s mak­ing the lec­tures them­selves avail­able on Face­book too. Watch the open­ing lec­ture above, and then check back in for new install­ments.

Note: Once you start play­ing the video, you might need to enable the audio in the low­er right hand cor­ner of the video play­er.

    Thank you for mak­ing your class avail­able. I don’t think you need to turn to those of us on line so often. It bogs down your dis­course. I am fol­low­ing along just fine so we must believe every­one else is.

    We are dis­cussing the awe, ow fac­tor, that makes change pos­si­ble. Okay back to class.
