This event is sold out. You can add your name to the waitlist below.In his new book, MSNBC’s rising star Hayes offers a radically novel answer to what led America into the “Fail Decade”: an era plagued with the failure of Congress, Wall Street and even Major League Baseball. An expert on political culture and political economy, Hayes mixes deft political analysis, timely social commentary, and deep historical understanding while offering a powerful argument that traces the roots of our present crisis and mistrust of authority to an unlikely source: meritocracy.
