Play • 37 min

With a majority of businesses across the nation at a standstill and soaring unemployment rates, former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich joined Errol to talk about what the coronavirus pandemic means for the future of the U.S. economy and the growing income inequality. As someone who has served in the administrations of three different presidents, he also weighed in on President Trump's handling of the crisis and the recent coronavirus aid bills. And he talked about his new book "The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It," which explores the role of wealth and power in American politics and how an elite oligarchy is undermining democracy.
