Robert Reich

This man doesn't have the character or the temperament to be president. Trump's election would endanger America and everything we believe in and stand for.

Robert B. Reich is one of the world’s leading thinkers about work and the economy. Now professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley, he has served under three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labour under Bill Clinton. He also served on President Barack Obama’s economic transition advisory board. In 2008, Time magazine named him one of the 10 most successful cabinet secretaries of the past century and The Wall Street Journal called him one of the United States’ top 10 thought leaders.

Reich is the author of 15 books including The Work of Nations, which has been translated into 22 languages, and several other national best sellers. He has a reputation for seeing where politics and the economy are going before they get there: In his 2007 bestseller, Supercapitalism, he warned of the perils of an under-regulated and over-leveraged financial system, and in his 2010 bestseller, Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future, he predicted a tepid recovery that would last for years, with volatile political consequences. In his most recent book, Saving Capitalism, also a national bestseller, Reich predicts a widening political divide not between Democrats and Republicans but between establishment elites and anti-establishment populists in both parties.

Reich is the co-creator and host of the acclaimed 2013 documentary film “Inequality for All,” which won the U.S. documentary special jury award for achievement in filmmaking at Sundance Film Festival. He is also a nationally syndicated columnist, writes frequently for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Financial Times, and is a contributor to CNBC ABC’s “This Week.”

In late 2003, Reich was awarded the prestigious Václev Havel Vision Foundation Prize, by the former Czech president in Prague, for his original contributions to economic and social thinking.

Reich received his bachelor of arts from New Hampshire’s Dartmouth College, his master’s from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and his law degree from Yale Law School.
