3 Dangerous Economic Myths

“We’ve accepted three dangerous [economic] mythologies that prevent us from seeing what’s really happening, and pose false choices.” — Robert Reich

3 FALSE Economic Concepts

According to former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, these are the three most dangerous economic myths:

  • False: The rich are job creators (True: consumers create demand for jobs)
  • False: The critical choice is between the free market or government (True: Government creates and enforces the free market)
  • False: We should worry about the size of government (True: We should worry about who government is for)
