The Harvard political economist argues that Americans must rethink some important cultural myths and self-definitions if the U.S. is to retain its dominant role within the emerging global economy.

Robert B. Reich is Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Richard and Rhoda Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton, and he served as an adviser to President-elect Barack Obama. He has written twelve books, including The Work of Nations (which has been translated into twenty-two languages), Supercapitalism, and the best sellers The Next American Frontier, The Future of Success, Locked in the Cabinet, and, most recently, Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times, the Financial Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. He is co-founding editor of The American Prospect magazine and chairman of Common Cause. His bi-weekly commentaries on public radio’s Marketplace are heard by nearly five million people. In 2003, Reich was awarded the prestigious Václav Havel Foundation Prize for pioneering work in economic and social thought. In 2008, Time magazine named him one of the ten most successful cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century, and The Wall Street Journal named him one of the nation’s ten most influential business thought-leaders.

Praise

Praise

-- "Robert Reich's agenda remains...a vigorous and welcome redefinition of modern liberalism. He seeks nothing less than a redefinition of our national myths in ways which make sense in the current world. The reigning myths of the Reagan era lie in shambles after his searching probe" -- Commonweal
-- "Mr. Reich's work is more than a broadside against liberal fiddlers. It is also a bold attempt to understand the basic cultural myths that determine how policy makers weave their individual programs into a 'story' that resonates with voters"

-- Wall Street Journal
-- "Reich's analysis, driven by the specific sources of our competitive disadvantage relative to the Japanese, is quite original....Reich's imagery is frighteningly on the mark. He asks us, correctly, I think, to consider a new intellectual and emotional framework for everything from interpersonal to economic to security dealings....His shift of the debate beyond quick-fix management devices and annual policy choices is path-breaking" -- Washington Monthly
-- "An elegantly written exposition and critique of contemporary American political mythology and a fervent plea for a new one" -- Village Voice
-- "His insights...are critically relevant to the debate over competitiveness. Reich's diagnosis is compelling" -- Business Week
-- "Searching, literate and intelligent ... I recommend this book to everyone interested in the ideas that shape our country's political life." -- Mario Cuomo
