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.

whoever (dem or progressive) winds up the frontrunner would be brilliant to court Robert Reich as economic advisor.

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.

It's interesting how many people on the right argue against social programs because it 'gives my money to poor people' or socialist ideals of means of production, while under the current system we use the exact same principles to distribute money to the wealthy, and giving taxpayer money to prop up some of the biggest companies in the country, that later go on to pay no Federal taxes.

"Don't let the moneyed interests divide along racial and gender lines." (I'd also add cultural lines) Exactly Robert!

Speaking Truth to Power videotaped in a manner easy to see. Beautiful to anyone who has not already checked their minds at the door.

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.

Thank you so much Mr. Robert, I appreciate them so much. You say it so even this ol woman can understand. If I were younger, I would run for something. Reality Winner was a whistleblower, she was sentenced to 5 yrs in prison.

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.

Wait, you mean using the DJIA and other stock market indices as a stand-in for the economy as a whole particularly as it relates to the average American just obfuscates the reality of what people are experiencing?

You don't say....
