Review

'A riveting guide to how our economic and political system has become so badly flawed.' -- Joseph Stiglitz 'Reich makes a very good case that widening inequality largely reflects political decisions that could have gone in very different directions... Saving Capitalism is a very good guide to the state we're in.' * Paul Krugman, The New York Review of Books * 'One of Reich's finest works, and is required reading for anyone who has hope that a capitalist system can indeed work the many, and not just the few.' * Salon * 'Arresting, thought-provoking... Readily understandable language... Powerful.' * Publishers Weekly * 'Like any good teacher, Robert Reich knows that making a simple yet crucial idea stick often takes much time and many presentations of the concept... In Saving Capitalism, Reich drives home a basic fact that, if widely understood, could lift America from today's destructive political standoff.' * Chicago Tribune * 'Reich has both the stature and eloquence to make a compelling case... Highly recommended to all readers... Insightful.' * Library Journal, starred review *

Product Description

'A very good guide to the state we’re in' Paul Krugman, New York Review of Books



'A well-written, thought-provoking book by one of America’s leading economic thinkers and progressive champions.' Huffington Post



Do you recall a time when the income of a single schoolteacher or baker or salesman or mechanic was enough to buy a home, have two cars, and raise a family?



Robert Reich does – in the 1950s his father sold clothes to factory workers and the family earnt enough to live comfortably. Today, this middle class is rapidly shrinking: American income inequality and wealth disparity is the greatest it’s been in eighty years.



As Reich, who served in three US administrations, shows, the threat to capitalism is no longer communism or fascism but a steady undermining of the trust modern societies need for growth and stability.
With an exclusive chapter for Icon’s edition, Saving Capitalism is passionate yet practical, sweeping yet exactingly argued, a revelatory indictment of the economic status quo and an empowering call to action.
