    Story
    (280)

    The author of 12 acclaimed books, Robert B. Reich is a Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and has served in three national administrations. While many blamed Wall Street for the financial meltdown, Aftershock points a finger at a national economy in which wealth is increasingly concentrated at the top - and where a grasping middle class simply does not have the resources to remain viable.

    Chris says: "Very plausible assessment of our economy"
    "It's a perspective."
    Overall

    He draws a line in the sand, just like everybody else with an economic viewpoint. Had a hard time accepting some of what he said as true. Just like every other "research based" opinion I think we can manipulate the data in almost any direction to support our beliefs. Isn't that what we do? Interesting though and worth a listen. The narration was good although I thought it was funny that everyone he quoted sounded like the voice I imagine the snarky old lady (Maxine) on the greeting cards would have.
