Conflict and Challenge in the American National Government
John Mark Hansen
Charles L. Hutchinson Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Political Science, and the College and senior advisor to President Zimmer, University of Chicago
The U.S. government shut down and brought to the brink of default over a budget dispute – again. Has American democracy gone mad?
Political scientist John Mark Hansen describes the main features of the current polarization in U.S. national government and diagnoses its causes, both institutional and political. He traces the historical forces that created the recent impasse and anticipates the political imperatives that will eventually cause it to dissipate.
Please join us for an illuminating look at the way the U.S. government operates, the way its politics has recently evolved, and way it may change.
