What has happened to America? How did we get here?

The 2008 financial crisis. Cronyism. Globalism vs. Economic nationalism. The rust belt. The rise of China. Lockdowns. The culture wars. The 1619 project. Critical Race Theory. Radical woke ideologies permeating our institutions and our schools. America first. Left vs right. The Age of Chaos.

Samuel Gregg is Distinguished Fellow in Political Economy and Senior Research Faculty at the American Institute for Economic Research and author of the Next American Economy: Nation, State and Markets in an Uncertain World.
