Robert Reich’s short video on pollution

Every ton of carbon that’s released into the atmosphere costs our nation between $40 and $100, and we release millions tons of it every year. Here’s a big-picture idea: instead of investing in dirty fuels, let’s start charging polluters for poisoning our skies and then invest the revenue so that it benefits everyone.  – Robert Reich.

Watch Make Polluters Pay to see what would happen if our nation divested from carbon polluters, made the polluters pay a price to pollute, and then collected the money.

American Aristocracy

The richest 1 percent of Americans hold 42 percent of our nation’s wealth. We haven’t seen this concentration of wealth since the Gilded Age of the late 1800s. Raising the estate tax on the wealthiest Americans is one way to fight back against growing inequality. Watch Robert Reich’s video “Raise the Estate Tax” , part of the 10 video series.

 What if Congress restored the estate tax to the level it was in the late 1990s? Watch Raise the Estate Tax to see how much revenue that would generate, and what that new revenue stream could fund.
