The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream

Bob Barney has chosen a timely broadcast of Tyler Cowen, Professor of Economics at George Mason University, who joins David Pakman to discuss his book "The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream."

Tyler Cowen - "Our society has become less dynamic, the American frontier is gone, real wages are rising at slower rates, the rate at which Americans move across state lines to find a new job is much lower than it used to be, we obsess over the safety of our children and medicate ourselves much much more. We have become a society obsessed with stasis and safety...we are in an age of complacency."
