Bill Moyers describes the effect of the growing inequality of income in America - where the average real income of  the bottom 90% of American taxpayers fell by 7% between 1973 and 2000.  He gives several moving stories of the impact of being poor and living in a poor neighborhood with schools with little funding, and compares this with the growth and financial success of large financial institutions.  He concludes with a challenge to each of us to learn the facts of present day American economic realities and calls forth the better angels of our nature, imbues us with our democratic impulse, and articulates our American Identity with its exceptional purpose and promise.
