內容簡介


前美國勞工部長及政治經濟學家羅勃‧賴克解析現代資本主義制度的危機與轉機

美國過去曾一度成為全球擁有最多中產階級的國家,也因為中產階級而促使經濟起飛。然而現在的美國,中產階級逐一瓦解,寡頭政治正在興起,國家也因此面臨8年來最嚴重的貧富差距。為什麼美國的經濟體系曾一度強盛,現在卻又落後許多國家,我們又能如何改善經濟危機?知名政治經濟學家及前美國勞工部長羅勃‧賴克認為資本主義賴以為生的5大要素:財產擁有、控制壟斷、契約的建立、破產與保障,以及對上述四點的執行能力,都在近年的經濟體制下遭受破壞。羅伯認為貧富差距的迅速擴張已經影響到資本主義的根基,甚至共和黨及民主黨的分化,也同樣將勞工與精英分化,唯有有效拯救資本主義,方能帶領經濟體系走向健全的運行。 

'A very good guide to the state we’re in' Paul Krugman, New York Review of Books

'A well-written, thought-provoking book by one of America’s leading economic thinkers and progressive champions.' Huffington Post


Do you recall a time when the income of a single schoolteacher or baker or salesman or mechanic was enough to buy a home, have two cars, and raise a family?

Robert Reich does – in the 1950s his father sold clothes to factory workers and the family earnt enough to live comfortably. Today, this middle class is rapidly shrinking: American income inequality and wealth disparity is the greatest it’s been in eighty years.

As Reich, who served in three US administrations, shows, the threat to capitalism is no longer communism or fascism but a steady undermining of the trust modern societies need for growth and stability. With an exclusive chapter for Icon’s edition, Saving Capitalism is passionate yet practical, sweeping yet exactingly argued, a revelatory indictment of the economic status quo and an empowering call to action.
