Book Group: Current Books

  • 02/19/2018 - 2:00pm

    The Jefferson Center Book Group meets on the third MONDAY of the month, 2-4 pm, at The Jefferson Center, in the Old Ashland Armory at 208 Oak Street, suite 101.

    From Amazon:

    In American Amnesia, bestselling political scientists Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson trace the economic and political history of the United States over the last century and show how a viable mixed economy has long been the dominant engine of America’s prosperity. We have largely forgotten this reliance, as many political circles and corporate actors have come to mistakenly see government as a hindrance rather than the propeller it once was. “American Amnesia” is more than a rhetorical phrase; elites have literally forgotten, or at least forgotten to talk about, the essential role of public authority in achieving big positive-sum bargains in advanced societies.
