Bizzare: Sundance Award Given to the Rich Robert Reich Bitching about Inequality

The documentary film Inequality for All has been awarded the Sundance US Documentary Special Jury Award for Achievement in Filmmaking. The film features the crony leftist apologist Robert Reich (He is chairman of Common Case, partially funded by George Soros), so it is unlikely to feature in any way the Federal Reserve Bank role in creating the huge gap between most and the crony wealthy, including banksters who are the first to see newly printed Fed money. Nor is interventionist Reich likely to discuss the role played by government regulations, which make it difficult, if not impossible, for most start-ups to grow.

Reich is also unlikely to discuss the difference between free market occurring inequality (the result of people who are entrepreneurial, work hard or have great talent) versus wealthy who achieve their wealth because of crony government protection.

As a result, the documentary should be quite entertaining. Just who will Reich blame inequality on?

He surely won't discuss the wealth of members of the board of trustees of the Sundance Institute, which  includes a number of  seriously wealthy people. Among them:

Robert Redford

President and Founder

Walter L. (Wally) Weisman who is the chairman of the Board of Trustees of Sundance Institute. He began his career as a lawyer and is a graduate of Stanford University and the Stanford University Law School. He is  chairman and chief executive officer of  American Medical International Inc.

Sean Bailey who is President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production

Designer Kenneth Cole

James R. Swartz who has been active in venture capital for four decades.

John E. Warnock who is co-chairman of the Board of Directors of Adobe Systems, Inc., a company he cofounded in 1982

Here's Reich begging for $75,000.
