In this episode of 92Y Talks, join renowned political philosopher and Harvard University professor Michael J. Sandel and David Brooks, accomplished New York Times columnist and commentator, for an exploration of the new edition of Sandel's book Democracy’s Discontent, which addresses the perils democracy confronts today. Now, a quarter century later, Sandel updates his classic work for an age when democracy’s discontent has hardened into a country divided against itself. He shows how Democrats and Republicans alike embraced a version of finance-driven globalization that created a society of winners and losers and fueled the toxic politics of our time. In a stirring new epilogue, Sandel argues the necessity of reconfiguring the economy and empowering citizens. The conversation was streamed live as part of The 92nd Street Y, New York's online talks series on December 1st, 2022.
