Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If Reich ( Tales of a New America ) is correct, the political conservatism of George Bush and his predecessor Reagan is Social Darwinism in disguise, promoting shortsighted greed and fostering a nonproductive paper economy. As an alternative, the Harvard political economist outlines a mix of reforms that emphasize a coordinated national industrial policy, investment in new technologies and infrastructure, retraining of workers with corporate support and a flexible, antiprotectionist trade policy. Among the proposals in these 32 incisive articles are a few that some readers might not consider "liberal," e.g., taxing more of Social Security benefits and reducing farm supports. Well worth reading, this volume contains much good sense and sets forth concrete steps that might help revitalize the economy. Topics include collective entrepreneurship, Washington lobbyists, sexism, Pentagon waste and U.S.
Japanese competition.

From Library Journal

Just as Michael Harrington preaches the revival of socialism in his recent Socialism: Past and Future , LJ 6/1/89), political economist Reich also argues that the time is ripe for the resurgence of liberal policies in the United States. This new work can be seen as a continuation of the liberal-economic vision portrayed by Reich in The Next American Frontier ( LJ 7/83) and Tales of a New America ( LJ 3/1/87). The 32 short essays in this collection touch on a variety of 1980s issues: the "casual fiscal policies of the Reagan administration," the 1987 Wall Street crash, corporate greed, "paper entrepreneurs," the workforce of the future, economic nationalism, Gorbachev's reforms, feminism, civic obligation, and the prospect of a Quayle presidency. Reich's ideas are provocative, his position is always clear, and his prose is lively. This will find readers in both public and academic libraries.
