Celebrated economic policy maker and political theorist Robert B. Reich argues that the nation's 2008 economic collapse is the result of an increasing concentration of income and wealth at the top--and a middle class that had to go deeply into debt to maintain a decent standard of living. To ensure that prosperity is widely shared, he continues, requires the implementation of a much broader safety net for the middle class financed by higher marginal tax rates on the very wealthy

The future of success by Robert B Reich( Book )

37 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dizzying exuberance of the Internet-driven marketplace offers unprecedented opportunities and an ever-expanding choice of deals, products, investments, and jobs - ranging from the merely attractive to the nearly irresistible - for the people with the right talents and skills. The technology that is the motor of this transformation relentlessly sharpens competition. When consumers can shift allegiance with the click of a mouse, sellers must make constant improvements by cutting costs, adding value, and creating new products. This is a boon to us as consumers, but it's wreaking havoc in the rest of our lives." "Reich demonstrates that the faster the economy changes - with new innovations and opportunities engendering faster switches by customers and investors in response - the harder it is for people to be confident of what they will be earning next year or even next month, what they will be doing, where they will be doing it. In short, those fabulous new deals of the fabulous new economy carry a steep price: more frenzied lives, less security, more economic and social stratification, the loss of time and energy for family, friendship, community, and self." "With the clarity and insight that are his hallmarks, and using examples from everyday life, Reich delineates what success is coming to mean in our time - the pitfalls and downturns hidden in the apparent advantages and advances - and suggests how we might create a more balanced society and more satisfying lives. The trends he discusses are powerful indeed, but they are not irreversible, or at least not unalterable." "The Future of Success is a stunning, timely book, certain to galvanize the nation's attention and transform the way we look at our future."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps no one is better acquainted with the intersection of finance and politics than Robert B. 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 eighty years. He makes clear how centrally problematic our veneration of the "free market" is, and how it has masked the power of the moneyed interests to tilt the market to their benefit. He exposes the falsehoods that have been bolstered by the corruption of our democracy by big corporations and the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street -- that all workers are paid what they're "worth," a higher minimum wage equals fewer jobs, corporations must serve shareholders before employees. Ever the pragmatist, Reich sees hope for reversing our slide toward inequality and diminished opportunity by shoring up the countervailing power of everyone else. Here is a revelatory indictment of our economic status quo and an empowering call to civic action

Superkapitalismus : wie die Wirtschaft unsere Demokratie untergräbt by Robert B Reich( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Secretary of Labour under Bill Clinton, Robert Reich won huge plaudits for his efforts to increase the minimum wage, close sweatshops and eliminate child labour around the world. Now a highly acclaimed author, in Supercapitalism he argues that capitalism should be made to serve democracy - and not the other way around. 'Supercapitalism' - turbocharged, Web-based, able to find and make anything, anywhere - is working wonderfully well to create wealth. But democracy, charged with caring for all citizens, is failing under its influence. Robert Reich explains how widening inequalities, heightened job insecurity and global warming are supercapitalism's logical outcomes. He shows that companies, fighting harder than ever to be competitive, have become more deeply involved in politics, and how the tools used to temper society's problems - taxation, education, trade unions - have withered.'A rounded and explicit discussion of how capitalist structures have stretched into the realm of democracy and eroded it' - New Statesman
