A political economy is made, not born. The United States adopted one political economy at the outset of the New Deal, and then replaced it with another—which seems increasingly unpopular domestically and globally—during the last quarter of the twentieth century. How did this happen, and what have been the effects?
This event is part of a series of Lectures on Public Policy funded by an anonymous gift and curated by the School of Social Science that aims to address issues of broad import relevant to contemporary politics, social conditions, and scientific matters.
