    Robert B. Reich is Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Richard and Rhoda Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton, and he served as an adviser to President-elect Barack Obama. He has written twelve books, includingThe Work of Nations (which has been translated into twenty-two languages),Supercapitalism, and the best sellers The Next American Frontier, The Future of Success, Locked in the Cabinet, and, most recently,Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future. His articles have appeared inThe New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times, the Financial Times, The Washington Post,and The Wall Street Journal. He is co-founding editor of The American Prospectmagazine and chairman of Common Cause. His bi-weekly commentaries on public radio’sMarketplace are heard by nearly five million people. In 2003, Reich was awarded the prestigious Vaclav Havel Foundation Prize for pioneering work in economic and social thought. In 2008,Time magazine named him one of the ten most successful cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century, andThe Wall Street Journal named him one of the nation’s ten most influential business thought-leaders.

    America’s economy and democracy are working for the benefit of an ever-fewer privileged and powerful people. But rather than just complain about it or give up on the system, we must join together and make it work for all of us.

    In this timely book, Robert B. Reich argues that nothing good happens in Washington unless citizens are energized and organized to make sure Washington acts in the public good. The first step is to see the big picture. Beyond Outrage connects the dots, showing why the increasing share of income and wealth going to the top has hobbled jobs and growth for everyone else, undermining our democracy; caused Americans to become increasingly cynical about public life; and turned many Americans against one another. He also explains why the proposals of the “regressive right” are dead wrong and provides a clear roadmap of what must be done instead.

    Here’s a plan for action for everyone who cares about the future of America.
