Your Call

Your Call: How have corporations gained control of the market and our democracy?

Svetlana Cvetko

 On the November 12th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss modern day capitalism.

In his new book, Saving Capitalism, For the Many not the Few, economist Robert B. Reich writes about how power and influence have created a shrinking middle class, and the greatest income inequality and wealth disparity in 80 years. He believes that with the right policies, the system can be saved and inequality can be reversed.

Do you think the system can be saved? Should it? What are the alternatives? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Robert Reich, Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at Goldman School of Public Policy at University of California, Berkeley and senior fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economics
