There is an old adage, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’, and Reich argues that large corporations, banks, and Wall Street have neglected this duty in exchange for short-term personal gain. Two key points he comes back to throughout this book are that the dollar value of one’s assets is not a measure of their worth, and that there is no such thing as a ‘free’ market. Beyond that, he shows how our political system has been rigged to favor the wealthy, and he highlights some of the key policy decisions over the last forty years that have helped create the excessive wealth and political influence enjoyed by ultra-rich in America today. He convincingly argues why this situation is unsustainable and provides rational suggestions for public policy changes that can help correct it. What more could you want? I highly recommend this one and hope politicians, pundits, and investment bankers carefully consider what he says. Who knows? They may begin to act responsibly.
