With The Common Good, the economist, former Secretary of Labor, and professor of public policy at University of California, Berkeley presents a clear-eyed manifesto on why we must restore the idea of the common good to the center of our economics and politics.
All societies and nations have virtuous cycles that reinforce and build the common good, as well as vicious cycles that undermine it. Over the course of the last five decades, Reich argues that America has been in a slowly-accelerating vicious cycle—one that can and must be reversed. But first, according to Reich, we need to weigh what really matters and how we as a country should relate to honor, shame, patriotism, truth, and the meaning of leadership.
With an increasingly divided political landscape, Reich—the bestselling author of Saving Capitalism and The Work of Nations—explains the history and function of the common good and issues a call to recognize and protect these cornerstones of our society. Book signing to follow.
