Professor Reich, former staff member of the Ford and Carter administrations, discussed his book The Work of Nations: Preparing Ourselves for 21st Century Capitalism. He discussed recent changes in national economic and industrial systems around the world and the effects of increasing industrial globalization of industry on national economies. His book examines the process through which the huge pyramidal structures of American industries in the 1950's are giving way to more flexible and geographically diverse international industries as technologies improve communication around the world. Professor Reich also discussed his experiences working as an intern in the office of Robert Kennedy, in the office of solicitor general Robert Bork, and as Director of Policy Planning for the Federal Trade Commission in the Ford and Carter administrations. close
