A Conversation with Christopher Hayes
and Katrina vanden Heuvel

Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another--from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to corporate America, even Major League baseball--imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of these failures, Americans have historically low levels of trust in their institutions. How did we get here? With his new book, Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy, MSNBC host and Nation editor at large Christopher Hayes offers a radically novel answer. Join us for a conversation between Hayes and Nation magazine editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel. Sponsored by The Nation and The New School.
