From the Publisher:
From one of America's foremost economic and political thinkers comes a vital analysis of our new hypercompetitive and turbo-charged global economy and the effect it is having on American democracy. With his customary wit and insight, Reich shows how widening inequality of income and wealth, heightened job insecurity, and corporate corruption are merely the logical results of a system in which politicians are more beholden to the influence of business lobbyists than to the voters who elected them.

Powerful and thought-provoking, Supercapitalism argues that a clear separation of politics and capitalism will foster an enviroment in which both business and government thrive, by putting capitalism in the service of democracy, and not the other way around.
Annotation:
Acknowledging that robust business practices have produced unprecedented profits for companies, and wealth for some in American society, the esteemed political economist Robert Reich, who is not anti-business, points out how many sectors in American society have been put out of balance. Things need to be set right, says Reich, before the situation worsens.||As businesses pour greater sums of money into politics, hoping for influence, says Reich, democracy has taken a hit. Reich's solution is to pass legislation that will take money out of politics, and give business little or no voice in government. Reich's perceptive analysis, along with his provocative prescription, are presented with the intention of restoring democracy and affluence across American society.

Praise

"[A] compelling and important analysis....Provocatively argued, this book could help begin a necessary national conversation." 07/16/2007

"SUPERCAPITALISM is a grand debunking of the conventional wisdom in the style of John Kenneth Galbraith....Indeed, the main thrust of Reich's argument is right on target." - Robert H. Frank 10/21/2007
