Three Economic Lessons

Professor Robert Reich presents "Why The Three Biggest Economic Lessons Were Forgotten" on Social Europe Journal:

"First, America’s real job creators are consumers, whose rising wages generate jobs and growth. If average people don’t have decent wages there can be no real recovery and no sustained growth.

"Second, the rich do better with a smaller share of a rapidly-growing economy than they do with a large share of an economy that’s barely growing at all.

"Third, higher taxes on the wealthy to finance public investments — better roads, bridges, public transportation, basic research, world-class K-12 education, and affordable higher education – improve the future productivity of America. All of us gain from these investments, including the wealthy."

TASC is hosting a panel discussion (SOLD OUT) as part of a screening of Reich's documentary, Inequality for All, as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.
