Saving Capitalism:  For the Many, Not the Few by Robert Reich

America was once celebrated for and defined by its large and prosperous middle class.  Now, this middle class is shrinking, a new oligarchy is rising, and the country faces its greatest wealth disparity in eighty years.  Why is the economic system that made America strong suddenly failing us, and how can it be fixed?


Leading political economist and best selling author Robert B. Reich presents a paradigm shifting, clear eyed examination of a political and economic status quo that no longer serves the people, exposing one of the most pernicious obstructions to progress today:  the enduring myth of the "free market" when, behind the curtain, it is the powerful alliances between Washington and Wall Street that control the invisible hand.  Laying to rest the specious dichotomy between a free market and "big government," Reich shows that the truly critical choice ahead is between a market organized for broad based prosperity and one designed to deliver ever more gains to the top.  Visionary and acute, Saving Capitalism illuminates the path toward restoring America's fundamental promise of opportunity and advancement.

Read the book then bring your thoughts and perspective to a lively discussion.
