Secretary Reich has convinced me. He's left me better educated about the function of corporations during the twentieth century, shown me how globalization has changed that very scheme; he has convinced me that our current political discussions about economic growth are highly off-base, centered too much within the borders of our own nation.

He made one misstep: I was left without a call to action or a plan of execution. I want these perspectives to become part of our discourse, but I am only one voter often faced with a field of candidates who still think in the old paradigm and so my choice ends up being meaningless. If Reich gave me some suggestions about how I could make a difference using the information I had just acquired, this would be a five-star book. Hopefully my next read from his writings will do better in that regard.
