Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the 1970s, and notwithstanding three recessions, the U.S. economy has soared. Consumers have been treated to a vast array of new products, while the prices of standard goods and services have declined. Companies have also become far more efficient and the stock market has surged. In short, American capitalism has been a triumph, and it has spread throughout the world.

At the same time, argues former secretary of labor Robert B. Reich, the effectiveness of democracy in America has declined. It has grown less responsive to the citizenry, and people are feeling more and more helpless as a result. In Supercapitalism, Reich discusses how capitalism has spilled over into politics, how it threatens democracy, and how citizens both benefit from and lose out because of supercapitalism.

Synopsis:

From one of the nations most valued voices on politics, business, and the economy, the bestselling author of "Locked in the Cabinet" and "The Work of Nations" discusses the clash between capitalism and democracy, in this timely, impassioned, and highly important book. Unabridged. 8 CDs.
