Reich is a wonderful speaker. He embodies an exceptional combination of wit, humor, and humility. It's ironic that some of these talks (particularly, the one on how unequal can America get before we snap) address so lucidly our present turmoil. They should be mandatory material in many colleges and universities across the nation. In this way, many people would learn what a fallacy US social mobility really has become and realize the acute level of our income disparity.
