Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Policy Seminar with Arthur Brooks

Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Annenberg Conference Room, Lou Henry Hoover Building

Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), gave a talk on “Bringing America Back Together.” He started by arguing that the degree of polarization in America has reached unprecedented proportions. He suggested that institutions such as Hoover and AEI have an intellectual and moral responsibility to advocate the ideas on which they were formed. He believed that if such ideas were applied, the broad-based economic growth that would follow would take America away from the polarized situation it finds itself in right now.
