UK Alumni: Robert Reich – The System
Virtual | United Kingdom |
July 28, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Robert Reich, political commentator, and former Secretary of Labor for Bill Clinton, will discuss his new book, The System
The System provides a gripping and urgent analysis of how the rigged systems of American politics and power interact to install an elite oligarchy, eviscerate the middle class and undermine democracy. After years of stagnant wages, volatile job markets, and an unwillingness by those in power to deal with profound threats such as climate change, there is a mounting sense that the system is fixed, serving only those select few with enough money to secure a controlling stake. Millions have lost their confidence in political and economic systems on both sides of the Atlantic.
Reich will be in conversation with the Guardian’s Head of Opinion, Jonathan Shainin.
