Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich On Losing Sight Of 'The Common Good'

The Common Good by Robert B. Reich
The Common Good by Robert B. Reich

There’s been a lot written over the past couple of years about how America is a more polarized country than it’s been in the past.

Robert Reich says the increase in partisanship has led to a decrease in people thinking about something else: the common good.

Reich was labor secretary under President Bill Clinton; he’s currently a professor of public policy at the Goldman School for Public Policy at UC Berkeley. His latest book is called "The Common Good."
