In the aftermath of Labor Day, as the business world returns to work after a summer lull, we look at whether our consumer-driven economy has been undermining democracy over the past 30 years.

Reich joins Kojo to explain why he suggests a fundamental rethinking of the relationship between business, consumers, and the government, including the elimination of the corporate income.


  • Robert Reich Professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy; former U.S. Secretary of Labor (1993-1997); and author of "Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life" (Knopf)
