Since the 1970s, the U.S. economy has soared. American capitalism has been a triumph, and it has spread throughout the world. At the same time, argues former secretary of labor Robert B. Reich, democracy in America has has grown less responsive to the citizenry, and people are feeling more and more helpless as a result. In Supercapitalism, Reich discusses how capitalism has spilled over into politics and shows how supercapitalism threatens democracy.

His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.

Supercapitalism reminds us that the power of political courage grows when it is joined with clear thinking." ---Bill Bradley, author of The New American Story
