The Gifted Generation: When Government Was Good
As evidenced by today’s government dysfunction, it didn’t last. In a discussion of his new book The Gifted Generation, Goldfield looks back at a time when our elected leaders worked “to extend the pursuit of happiness to a broader population” and how that ideal has dimmed since the 1970s and ’80s.
Goldfield is a professor of history at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. His talk is co-presented by Rainy Day Books.
