From the best-selling author of Saving Capitalism and The Work of Nations, a passionate, clear-eyed manifesto on why we must restore the idea of the common good to the center of our economics and politics. With the warmth and lucidity that have made him one of our most important public voices, Robert B. Reich makes the case for a generous, inclusive understanding of the American project, centering on the moral obligations of citizenship. Rooting his argument in everyday reality and common sense, Reich demonstrates the existence of a common good, and argues that it is this that defines a society or a nation. Societies and nations undergo virtuous cycles that reinforce and build the common good, as well as vicious cycles that undermine it. Over the course of the past five decades, Reich contends, America has been in a slowly accelerating vicious cycle--one that can and must be reversed. But first we need to weigh what really matters, and how we as a country should relate to honor, shame, patriotism, truth, and the meaning of leadership. Powerful, urgent, and utterly vital, this is a heartfelt missive from one of our foremost political thinkers: a fundamental statement about the purpose of society and a cri de coeur to save America's soul.… (plus d'informations)

A simple, straightforward argument that we have abandoned any concept of the common good in order to privilege a whatever-it-takes mentality.
"[T]hree exploitations of trust set off chain reactions that have undermined the common good: Whatever-it-takes-to-win politics disregarded what had been the unwritten rules of good government, based on equal political rights--enabling the most powerful players to extract all political gains. Whatever-it-takes-to-maximize-profits rejected what had been the unwritten rules of corporate responsibility, based on obligations to all stakeholders--allowing CEOs, Wall Street, and investors to extract all financial gains. Whatever it takes to rig the economy dismissed what had been the unwritten rule that the "free market" should work for everyone--permitting the most powerful economic actors to extract almost all economic gains."

While this book was written by an author whom I vaguely remember in my youth as having been more conservative, or right-wing, than what I was comfortable with in more recent times, I now see him as more moderate, perhaps because I am now looking through the lens of what we see here, in these very polarizing times. That is rightly what he tries to take aim at in his book: despite what I see as some rather unfair critiques that he levels at former President Obama, he is working to make us all understand that it is The Common Good, which has always been at the center of American thought, that he is talking about in a most urgent way. And on that, we can certainly agree.

Let's #EndPoverty by improving these four parts of our Public Domain Social Infrastructure: (1. #libraries, 2. #ProBono legal aid and Education, 3. #UniversalHealthCare , and 4. good #publictransport )
Read, Write, Dream, Walk !
