Restlessness, ambition, and innovation are key American traits. But today, Americans are working harder than ever to avoid change. In “The Complacent Class” (St. Martin’s Press, February 2017), a follow-up to the “New York Times” best-selling book “The Great Stagnation,” Tyler Cowen explores our desire to become more insulated, comfortable, and accepting of the status quo. Americans are moving less, starting fewer businesses, marrying people more like ourselves, and choosing as much as we can based on algorithms that wall us off from anything that might be too new or different. As a result, we could see a version of America that is more segregated, more unequal, and no longer the leader of tomorrow’s greatest achievements.

Please join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a live interview with “Reason Magazine’s” Katherine Mangu-Ward and Tyler Cowen on this phenomenon and what it means for the future of politics, the economy, and the very foundation of our culture. According to Malcolm Gladwell, “His brilliant new book…has been on my nightstand after I devoured it in one sitting. I am at round-the-clock Cowen saturation right now.”

Copies of the book will be available for sale after the discussion. To read more about the book or pre-order a copy, visit complacentclass.com.
