In his book, Reich points out that we have the solutions to our economic crisis in front of us. He shows that a truthful diagnosis of the Great Recession and the Great Depression reveals that the root causes were essentially the same: powerful vested interests seeking to advance their financial agendas by appropriating and corrupting the government at the expense of the People. Reich's book reminds us that we are not helpless. We can turn this around and have another period of prosperity if we acknowledge history, and pursue the solutions that worked during FDR's presidency.
The interview will be hosted by Egberto Willies, host of the Coffee Party weekly radio show “Politics Done Right” and Coffee Party USA. Egberto will spend the first half hour taking calls and discussing the the book. Sec. Reich will join us in the second half hour.
Professor Reich was President Clinton’s Secretary of Labor between 1993 and 1997. He is now Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has written thirteen books, including The Work of Nations, Locked in the Cabinet, Supercapitalism.
