Robert B. Reich is the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served as the former secretary of labor in three U.S. administrations and has written 13 books. The author of Aftershock and The Work of Nations, Reich will sign and discuss his new book, Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few.
Perhaps no one is better acquainted with the intersection of finance and politics than Reich, and now he reveals the cycles of power and influence that have perpetuated a new American oligarchy, a shrinking middle class, and the greatest income inequality and wealth disparity in 80 years. Saving Capitalism is a passionate yet practical, sweeping yet minutely argued, myth-shattering breakdown of what’s wrong with our political-economic system and what it will take to fix it.
