  • Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 29 mins)

    Story
    (232)

    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"
    "full of contradictory, wrong and marxist thought"
    Overall

    Keynes would be very proud of this book as it mentions his work often.


    there is an often reoccurring talking point, the gap between the poor and the rich, and how accumulating wealth among the rich is the problem with the economy and how it is necessary to tax wealth in order to redistribute it.

    Karl Marx would be proud of this book.

    Story
    (1045)

    Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

    Tango says: "The rock could use a bit more polishing"
    "Stupid & disgusting."
    Overall

    book starts out slow, then as the main protagonist matures your interest grows. Just about this time your introduced to a "incredible" society that computes better than all of computers of the future by the "transmission of bodily fluids" and that's the nicest way the book puts it.
