Description

The author of 12 acclaimed books, Robert B. Reich is a Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and has served in three national administrations. While many blamed Wall Street for the financial meltdown, Aftershock points a finger at a national economy in which wealth is increasingly concentrated at the top-and where a grasping middle class simply does not have the resources to remain viable.

Professional reviews

"Reich, secretary of labor in the Clinton administration, discusses why the economy collapsed in 2008 and what we need to do about it now. As narrator, Reich reads with the confidence and forcefulness of someone who has had to defend his positions in the most competitive environments. Except for some uncertainty with his diction early in the book, he is an articulate raconteur who has command of his pacing and an obvious connection with the text. He even attempts character voices throughout the book, giving us approximations of Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, and George W. Bush. They all sound the same, by the way, but Reich gets credit for trying. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
