Economist Robert Reich is driven to end income inequality
The political commentator, author, professor and Labor secretary under President Clinton doesn't consider himself a success because the nation's income gap keeps growing and so many American families are struggling.The gig: Reich, who was Labor secretary under President Clinton, is a nationally known economist and political commentator. Much of his work focuses on America's rising income inequality. Reich's belief that too much of the nation's wealth is going to the rich at the expense of the middle class and poor has made him a bestselling author while inflaming his critics. Reich, 64, now teaches public policy at UC Berkeley.
