Looking at economics from another angle with Robert Reich

As secretary of labor for Bill Clinton, Robert Reich faced the task of bringing the American workforce out of a recession and into a new global economy. He visited the Santa Clara campus as part of the President’s Speaker Series on March 8. “Right now, we separate politics and economics into separate disciplines … Nobody is looking at the political economy. We used to talk about it as political economy. I hope that changes. It’s gotta change, because inequality is getting so large and income and wealth so concentrated that we can no longer simply avoid the subject.”

SCM Editor Steven Boyd Saum sat down with Reich for a conversation. Read that Q&A here, “This American Pie.”
