Share What Went Wrong In Washington? Where Do We Go From Here?

Event Details

Among the most powerful forces shaping our recent history are the decline of America’s middle class and the near-collapse of American governance. Please join us to learn about these developments from two of the country’s leading experts:

  • Hedrick Smith, the Pulitzer Prize- and Emmy Award-winning journalist whose recent New York Times bestseller -- Who Stole the American Dream? -- chronicles the decisions that triggered a vast transfer of wealth from the middle class to large corporations and the affluent; and
  • Norman J. Ornstein, American Enterprise Institute senior scholar and co-author of It’s Even Worse Than It Looks, the New York Times bestseller that isolates the key factors responsible for Congress’s unprecedented dysfunction.

Responding to Smith and Ornstein will be:

  • Judy Feder, Urban Institute fellow, professor and former dean of Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute, and former principal deputy assistant secretary for planning and evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services; and
  • Rudolph G. Penner, the Arjay and Frances Miller Chair in Public Policy at the Urban Institute, the former Director of the Congressional Budget Office, and the former Assistant Director for Economic Policy at the Office of Management and Budget.

The conversation will be moderated by Stan Dorn, Urban Institute senior fellow.
