Noted Economist with Wicked Felt-tipped Pen

The noted political economist is Robert Reich,  a professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. In this video, he connects the dots about the structure of the US economy, and does it in a mere two minutes and fifteen seconds.  Reich is also a fast hand with the felt-tipped pen and may have an alternate career as a political cartoonist.  This video has been around a while and has been seen by well over a million people. But we have a weakness for the message. Check it out.
