In “The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It,” Robert B. Reich offers a scathing indictment of America’s political and financial systems while proposing real solutions to fix them. He argues that the biggest problem with these systems is that they are rigged in favor of those at the top, leaving most Americans struggling paycheck-to-paycheck. The only way to change this, Reich contends, is through large-scale systemic reform.
