It’s looking like 1980 again, a crossroads when Ronald Reagan helped reengineer the economy and steer America right. But there may be another way forward in post-Trump America, says author Kurt Andersen.
This week on Inside the Hive, author Kurt Andersen joins Joe Hagan to discuss his new book, Evil Geniuses: The Unmaking of America: A Recent History, which is both the story of how the Republican Party spent the last 50 years reengineering the economy to favor big business at the expense of the working class, and also a crucial primer for the 2020 election. Andersen argues that we’re at a crossroads not unlike 1980, when Reagan ushered in the rightward tilt of our economic lives, selling the idea that unfettered greed would magically lift all boats. The plan was long in the making, a counterstrike against the 1960s, and it was all too successful. To understand what must be done in a post-Trump America—which is the only America with a future—you have to understand the crucial history that brought us here.
