Twilight of the Elites: A Conversation

June 21, 2012

From The New School for Social Research:

Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another – from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to corporate America, even Major League Baseball – imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of the Fail Decade, Americans have historically low levels of trust in their institutions; the social contract between ordinary citizens and elites lies in tatters. How did we get here? With his new book Twilight of the Elites America After Meritocracy, MSNBC host and Nation editor-at-large Christopher Hayes offers a radically novel answer.
Hayes discussed the book with Nation’s editor Katrina vanden Heuvel on June 14, 2012 at The New School for Social Research in New York City.
