Aftershock is a brilliant revealing of our harrowing economic crisis and how we should deal with its aftermath. When the nation's economy foundered in 2008, blame was almost universally pointed at Wall Street, but renowned economist and political theorist Robert Reich posits a different reason for this meltdown - and for the seemingly treacherous road ahead. He argues that the real problem is structural: it lies in the increasing concentration of income and wealth at the very top, with everyone else sinking into hardship and debt. Reich offers a thoroughly practical, humane, desperately needed blueprint for lastingly improving America's economy.

Robert Reich is Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton, and as economic advisor to President Obama. Among his twelve books are: The Future of Success, Locked in the Cabinet, Supercapitalism and Reason. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. His "Marketplace" commentaries can be found on and iTunes.

"We've got Reich, they've got Coulter. We win." -Al Franken
