“I can’t tell you the influence that you have had thus far on the conversation,” economist Robert Reich told an energized crowd at Occupy San Francisco in this video by MoveOn.org. In this new video series from MoveOn.org, Reich takes on corporate influence in the political system and economic inequality in a way that only the former secretary of labor can. After tracking America’s growing income inequality for decades, Reich knows how intractable the problem has been, and he commends the Occupy movement for finally mobilizing grassroots action to take on the corporate domination of our politics and our economy.

This video is only the first in this new series. Check back at TheNation.com each Wednesday for new episodes from Reich and MoveOn.org.
