Overview

This enhanced edition of Robert B. Reich's eBook Beyond Outrage features five videos that are both entertaining and informative. In them, Reich puts his patented wry style-not to mention his whiteboard-to good use, breaking down what's wrong with this country and urging Americans to get beyond mere outrage about the nation's increasingly concentrated wealth and corrupt politics in order to mobilize and to take back our economy and democracy.

The American political system is in crisis-paralyzed by gridlock, beset with cynicism, and sabotaged by competing interests that have perversely made even common-sense policy virtually impossible. In this urgent book, Robert Reich argues nothing important can happen in Washington unless citizens are energized and organized to make sure politicians honor their promises. But in order to be effectively mobilized, we need to see the big picture. Beyond Outrage connects the dots for us, showing why the increasing share of income and wealth going to the top has hobbled jobs and growth for everyone else, undermining our democracy; caused Americans to become increasingly cynical about public life; and turned many Americans against one another. He also explains why the proposals of the "regressive right" are dead wrong and provides a clear roadmap of what must be done instead. Here's a blueprint for action for everyone who cares about the future of America.

Beyond Outrage: Expanded Edition: What has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy, and how to fix it 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 12 reviews.

Robert Reich writes a compelling, measured estimation of the current state of US society in this fast-reading, well-documented policy position paper. Never shrill, he lets the facts speak for themselves. At the same time, he deftly deconstructs the fundamental mistaken premises guarded by well-known fallacy gatekeepers from Fox News to Newt Gengrich. He even traces the latest Republican policy positions to a surprising advocate: Herbert Hoover. This book offers those on the left a clear and concise explanation and reasoning for Progressive ideas and ideals. For those on the right, this book is an absolute must-read to clearly understand a true progressive's perspective of the issues facing our society; it's policy premises are based on facts, not vitriol, and deserves a fair, open-minded read.

The use of Anonymous is more and more disgusting. The Tea Party and GOP can put in a dozen praising or attacking a book to set its rating. Robert Reich is a brilliant writer who deserves 5 stars for his insight into our economy and those who would turn it await from the people.
