America is at a crossroads and our economy is about it face its most severe test in nearly a century. In The Tyranny of Dead Ideas, Matt Miller overturns orthodoxies of the right and the left-including free trade is always good, employers should be responsible for health coverage, taxes hurt the economy, schools are a local matter, money follows merit–and offers fresh insights that can contribute to reinventing American capitalism and democracy for the twenty-first century. Miller is senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a contributing editor at Fortune, and host of NPR’s Left, Right & Center. Tickets are $5. To register, click here.
