Steven Brill - Tailspin: The People and Forces Behind America's Fifty-Year Fall--And Those Fighting to Reverse It

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 1, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Brill’s response to the national political malaise is a deeply researched, well-reasoned, and fair-minded diagnosis of the current ills, a history of their development, and a prescription for a better future. Covering the years 1967 to 2017, Brill traces the simultaneous decline of America’s core values—meritocracy, innovation, due process, free speech, and even democracy itself—and the rise of big-money lobbying, legal and financial engineering, the demise of private-sector unions, and a hamstrung bureaucracy. Profiling the people and forces behind this shift, Brill, an award-winning journalist and author of America’s Bitter Pill and Class Warfare, shows that both parties bear responsibility for bringing the country to its current crisis. Similarly, he finds many progressives and conservatives already finding ways to work together to rebuild a unified country.
