All that money for the rich went to buying mansions and yachts. Wrong, it went to buying governments.

Why in the hell don’t YOU, Robert Reich, run for POTUS? I’ve been waiting since the early 90’s for either you, or Colin Powell to run, because you’re both intelligent, well-meaning, and trustworthy people who could do great things. Especially if you ran together! But, like I’ve always heard, truly intelligent and decent people are too smart to WANT that job! You would have my vote, though, and I for one would work hard for your campaign. I am convinced you would win. USA needs Integrity back into our highest office.

Do not forget - the cost of a HOME went up 500% from 1999 to 2006 because of BANK inflating the cost to sell CDOs, thus making everyone broke.

I suspect that the "sources of countervailing power" were only allowed to exist in the 1940s because the rich and the powerful were afraid of the possibility of a communist revolution in the United States. It seems possible that capitalism will only work well for the majority when the controlling minority are living with a very real fear of losing everything if they make the majority too angry.

Reich left out a key piece of the economy: energy-economics. Almost no economists cover this aspect, and yet it is absolutely vital for climate mitigation and improving the quality of life.

Oh, I wish we had a Robert Reich in Canada. Well, at least we have Robert Reich, in general. :)

This is brilliant! More people, especially conservatives, needs to watch this. I wouldn't mind having this guy as my prime minister (I live in the UK).

The first goal has to be to teach people about the corrosive influence of money in politics - something you do well!
Bravo.

Mr Reich: I would love to see you in discussion with AOC. In particular to discuss the range of examples of leadership you mention here and the experience of activating groups.
Thanks :)

The bottom line is that it is about power, and the people have no power. The decisions, the crimes, the story, is all hidden from view.

We all know about this in many ways from books, videos, documetaries, etc and yet knowing this doesn't make any more of a difference than knowing about global warming - the rich SOBs do not care.

Your whole economy is based on resource extraction, and the destruction of the planet.
The sooner the economy is destroyed the better of all life will be

The "new economy" should be based on the "economy of living",
as expressed by Henry David Thoreau in WALDEN.
