Robert Reich discusses Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life.
In his newest book, "Supercapitalism," Reich explores the clash between capitalism and democracy. Our economy has become more efficient than ever, with turbocharged, web-based global capitalism morphing into supercapitalism. While supercapitalism is working well to enlarge the economic pie, democracy - charged with caring for all its citizens - is becoming less and less effective under its influence. He makes clear how the tools traditionally used to temper America's societal problems have withered as supercapitalism has burgeoned, and sets out a clear course that can lead the nation to a vibrant capitalism and a concurrent, equally vibrant democracy- Cody's@FCCB
