Duration: 7 hours 59 minutes
In The Soul of Capitalism William Greider shows how to reinvent capitalism so that it works not only for profits but for people, too. Greider contends that the recent contagion of financial fraud and corporate bankruptcies confirms what is wrong with capitalism. Our discontents are not just with dishonest CEOs, but with what our affluence costs us in family stress, struggling to make ends meet, and the social and environmental destructions of communities and natural surroundings. Greider proposes a fundamental realignment of power, showing where to find the leverage for changing the current system. He offers many successful examples and assures us that it is within our power to make the economy work for us.
