Robert Reich: Why the Common Good Disappeared and How We Get It Back

University of California Television (UCTV)
Published on Oct 18, 2018

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) 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.

Martin J. Walsh, a lifelong advocate for working people and a proud product of the City of Boston, was sworn in as the City’s 54th Mayor in January of 2014. Mayor Walsh’s vision is of a thriving, healthy, and innovative Boston – a city with equality and opportunity for all, where a revolutionary history inspires creative solutions to the world’s hardest challenges. Since taking office he has worked to create good jobs, great schools, safe streets, and affordable homes, while building a more responsive, representative, and transparent city government. In addition, he invited the people of Boston to help build a blueprint for the city’s future in Imagine Boston 2030, the first citywide plan in half a century.

Before taking office, Mayor Walsh served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1997 to 2013. Representing Boston’s diverse 13th Suffolk District, he was a leader on job creation and worker protections; substance abuse, mental health, and homelessness; K-12 education; and civil rights. He also played a key role defending Massachusetts’ pioneering stand on marriage equality.
