Overview

Beyond Outrage: Expanded Edition: What has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy, and how to fix it by Robert B. Reich

America’s economy and democracy are working for the benefit of an ever-fewer privileged and powerful people. But rather than just complain about it or give up on the system, we must join together and make it work for all of us.

In this timely book, Robert B. Reich argues that nothing good happens in Washington unless citizens are energized and organized to make sure Washington acts in the public good. The first step is to see the big picture. Beyond Outrage connects the dots, 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 plan for action for everyone who cares about the future of America.

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.
