The unprecedented level of economic inequality in America is undeniable. This edition of Moyers & Company reports on dismaying extremes of wealth and poverty on display in California’s Silicon Valley. Facebook, Google, and Apple are minting millionaires while the area’s homeless—who’ve grown 20 percent in the last two years—are living in tent cities at their virtual doorsteps. These are the human faces of economic inequality. Broadcast dates: April 12, 2013, and May 31, 2013. (17 minutes)
