Robert Reich

Robert ReichThe week before the Iowa caucus, Robert Reich called Hillary Clinton “the most qualified candidate for president of the political system we now have,” and Bernie Sanders “the most qualified candidate to create the political system we should have.” He joins us for a sweeping conversation about the limits of America’s political system, and whether it’s possible to change them; what the Sanders insurgency means for the presidential race; why trade deals like Trans Pacific Partnership get promoted by Democratic administrations over the objections of the unions that help elect them; and what housing has to do with inequality.
