'Beyond Outrage'

That's the title of Robert Reich's current book, but today I want to point you to Reich's blog. Reich is on fire these days. Here are the last few posts; if you have time, read them all:
I came to admire Reich during and immediately after his days as President Clinton's Secretary of Labor. The condensed version of that episode: Reich really didn't fit in. He was too committed to the truth and to the well-being of the nation to toe the Clinton line; eventually he moved on. He is now a professor of public policy at UC Berkeley, where I suspect he is a good deal more comfortable. Politics aside, Reich is a brilliant economist and, in my opinion, a gifted teacher. I hope you enjoy his posts, if "enjoy" is the right word when the subject matter is so depressing.
