Newton Free Library presents: The System, Who Rigged It, How We Fix It

February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Millions of Americans have lost confidence in our political and economic system. With the characteristic clarity and passion that has made him a central civil voice, Robert B. Reich shows how wealth and power have interacted to install an elite oligarchy, eviscerate the middle class and undermine democracy. Join us for an engaging conversation with Mr. Reich on his latest book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It.

Christopher Lydon, host of the original podcast, Open Source, heard in Boston on WBUR, will moderate.

Robert B. Reich is chancellor’s professor of public policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations and has written fifteen books, including The Work of Nations, which has been translated into twenty-two languages, and the bestsellers The Common GoodSaving CapitalismSupercapitalism and Locked in the Cabinet.

Space is limited, please register here. Login information will be sent the day of the event. Please note, registration closes two hours before the event start time.

If you’d like to borrow, The System, from the library please reserve it here. If you would like to own a copy, they are available at Newtonville Books.
