Robert Reich: The System, Who Rigged It, How We Fix It (Virtual)

Millions of Americans have lost confidence in our political and economic system. With the characteristic clarity and passion that has made him a central civil voice, Robert B. Reich shows how wealth and power have interacted to install an elite oligarchy, eviscerate the middle class, and undermine democracy. Join us for an engaging conversation with Mr. Reich on his latest book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It. Please know that Christopher Lydon recently sustained a minor injury and therefore will be unable to join us tomorrow evening. We are very grateful to Tiziana Dearing, host of Radio Boston, heard on WBUR, who has agreed to stand in for Chris as our moderator!
