Why the Common Good Disappeared and How We Get It Back

Lecture | October 12 | 1-2 p.m. |  Hertz Concert Hall

 Goldman School of Public Policy

The Class of '68 50th Reunion Lecture

PROFESSOR ROBERT B. REICH ignites a discussion of the good we have had in common, what happened to it, and what we might do to restore it. His goal is not that we all agree on the common good. It is that we get into the habit of thinking and talking about it, listening to each other’s views and providing a means for people with opposing views to debate these questions civilly.

Robert B. Reich is Chancellor's Professor and Carmel P. Friesen Chair in Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy, and is a Senior Fellow at both the Goldman School’s Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement and Berkeley’s Blum Center for Developing Economies.

Sponsored by the Cal Class of 1968 and the Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement.
