"The Global Economy and the Jobs of the Future"
Robert Reich

 

TV Broadcast Schedule

Robert Reich former Secretary of Labor and author of The Future of Success, The Work of Nations, and many other books, founder of The American Prospect, University Professor and Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy, Brandeis University.

Professor Reich will talk about how globalization is affecting our jobs, our incomes, and our politics. America is dividing between the "have-mores" who are well-equipped to benefit from globalization, and the "have-lesses" who aren't. Although the overall benefits of globalization are much greater than the disadvantages, the have-lesses are bearing almost all the burdens and gaining few of the benefits. What can America or any other society do to widen the circle of prosperity? Professor Reich will address these and related questions.
