Description

Robert B. Reich makes a powerful case for the expansion of America’s moral imagination. Rooting his argument in common sense and everyday reality, he demonstrates that a common good constitutes the very essence of any society or nation. Societies, he says, undergo virtuous cycles that reinforce the common good as well as vicious cycles that undermine it, one of which America has been experiencing for the past five decades. This process can and must be reversed. But first we need to weigh the moral obligations of citizenship and carefully consider how we relate to honor, shame, patriotism, truth, and the meaning of leadership.

Powerful, urgent, and utterly vital, this is a heartfelt missive from one of our foremost political thinkers.

The general impression of the book:

The Common Good, by Robert B. Reich is excellent. Relevant and accessible, it offers an insight into the structure of political failures as well as ways to remedy the common ailments so that we may return to, and/or recreate "The Common Good".

Organization of the book:

In terms of logic, consistency, and clarity, the book is organized in such a way that it intelligently holds the readers' hand through how we got where we are as a nation/planet, and what possible steps we can take to lift what has fallen.

Negative aspects of the book:

Not enough public knowledge that the book exists. I am ready to read "Saving Capitalism" by the same author.
