Monsenor The Last Journey of Oscar Romero / Income Inequality

Video 1: "They learned that it was not God keeping them hungry, but the government and the wealthy institutions."

Response 1: I think this is the most powerful quote of the video because it gives us a sense of how destructive a government can be to its own people. It is impossible to overcome poverty if it's institutionalized. The fact that archbishop Romero was able to save so many people in the face of such oppression is astounding and shows just how much a difference one person can make in the fight for equality.

Video 2: "The only ones that can create jobs are the working class"

Response 2: Nick Hanauer makes a great point in his speech: the wealthy can not create jobs. Allowing the rich to get richer doesn't create jobs in the economy because only demand from the working and lower class can create the opportunity for investment and thus jobs. What the US government does in following Reagan's economic doctrine is actually counter-productive to the economy. In order to improve the quality of life for everyone wealth needs to be distributed to the lower classes.
