Former Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich discusses his film "Inequality for All" with consumer columnist David Lazarus.

Today's front page of the L.A. Times brought sobering economic news:

  • Boeing's shutting its Long Beach C-17 plant, and up to 3,000 people will lose their jobs.
  • Unemployment in L.A. County still stands at 9.9%.
  • The Federal Reserve says it is downgrading its forecast for U.S. economic growth to 2% to 2.3% this year, off from the 2.3% to 2.6% it had predicted in June.

Why is the recovery so anemic, more than four years after the Great Recession?

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich believes it has quite a bit to do with income inequality in America. He's made a new documentary about it, "Inequality for All," with director Jacob Kornblut.

Join us at 10:30 a.m. today as consumer columnist David Lazarus hosts a live chat with Reich about the film and the economy. You can check out the trailer below.
