Product description

Review

"Smart and provocative . . . Reich's proposed responses to supercapitalism are at once bold and surprising . . . [he] challenges us to think deeply about political economy."
-"News & Observer
"
"The book succeeds brilliantly. Clear-eyed, well-reasoned, and deeply insightful, "Supercapitalism "is must reading for anyone interested in the fate of our country and its institutions . . . timely and important reading for a country in deep distress."
-"Kansas.com
"
"Critically important . . . the value of this book isn't in proposing a specific policy prescription. It's about waking up and educating several generations of Americans who can't seem to understand that you can't have it all for free . . . It's the most important message anyone can impart today."
-"San Francisco Bay Guardian
"
"A grand debunking of the conventional wisdom . . . the main thrust of Reich's argument is right on target . . Reich documents in lurid detail the explosive growth of corporate lobbying expenditures and campaign contributions since the 1970s."
-"The New York Times Book Review
"
"Reich is that most exotic of species: an economist who can write."
-"San Francisco "magazine
""Supercapitalism "is not a polemic or a call to arms. Reich is merely trying to dent capitalism's rock-star status while suggesting to a dazed citizenry that, as Shakespeare said of Caesar's Rome, the fault is not in our stars but in ourselves."
-"San Francisco Chronicle
""Surprising . . . Reich paints a disturbing portrait of a world in which corporations have become our quasi-government."
-"Sunday Star-Ledger
""An engaging and insightful account."
-"Harvard Business Review
"

"From the Hardcover edition."

"Reich documents in lurid detail the explosive growth of coporate lobbying expenditures and campaign contributions since the 1970s. . . . Supercapitalism is a grand debunking of the conventional wisdom in the style of John Kenneth Galbraith."
—"The New York Times"
"Reich turns the standard liberal critique of corporations on its head."
—"Forbes"
"A thoughtful and heartfelt critique of the ruthless, hell-bent-for-profit brand of capitalism that has been in vogue under Democrats and Republicans alike since roughly the end of the cold war."
—"Portfolio"
""Supercapitalism "describes important and sweeping economic changes. . . . Reich has a talent for making economics accessible and sometimes even fun."
—"The Los Angeles Times"
