Robert Reich, Chancellor's Professor and Carmel P. Friesen Chair in Public Policy, UC Berkeley; Former U.S. Secretary of Labor under President Clinton; Author, The Common Good

Robert Reich is one of the most beloved and influential voices in progressive politics today. In his new book, The Common Good, the former Secretary of Labor, and professor of Public Policy at U.C. Berkeley contends that America has trapped itself in a vicious cycle of “whatever it takes” that has left us more divided than ever. As a result, Americans are experiencing an erosion of trust in our media, the largest income inequality in modern history, and the resurgence of nationalist movements and racist rhetoric.

Yet despite this political bickering, Reich argues this cycle can—and must—be reversed. He believes that Americans should focus on our shared ideals and values, rather than what divides us. Join us as Robert Reich visits The Commonwealth Club to discuss The Common Good, and how we can work together to create a stronger future for all.

Reich will discuss his belief that «the political class is beholden to special interests who demand unsustainable spending, and that the unfunded liability crisis can be solved if we unshackle the engines of economic growth.»
