Last week, Google talked to Robert Reich who came to Mountain View to speak about his latest book, Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future, as part of the Authors@Google speaker series.

Reich, currently the Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley, has served under three US administrations, and has written 13 books, including The Work of Nations, The Future of Success, and Supercapitalism.

In the video below, "Reich discusses where the U.S. economy is today, how it got there, and where it's headed. He argues that America's economic problems can be attributed to how its wealth is currently being distributed and makes several recommendations, focusing on how Silicon Valley and technology have formed and influenced the economy, in particular," stated Ariel Levine, Google Books Associate.
