Arthur C. Brooks – Sunday August 9th on ‘An Economy of One’

Gary will host Arthur C. Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, to discuss his newest book, The Conservative Heart: How to Build a Fairer, Happier, and More Prosperous America.

From http://arthurbrooks.com/book/the-conservative-heart/:

FOR TOO LONG, CONSERVATIVES HAVE BEEN A MOVEMENT OF THE HEAD AND NOT THE HEART

Many Americans feel caught between two dispiriting political choices: ineffective compassion on one hand and heartless pragmatism on the other.

Progressives have always presented themselves as book-smchampions of the poor and vulnerable. But they have not succeeded — more and more people are hopeless and dependent on government. Meanwhile, conservatives possess the best solutions to the problems of poverty and declining mobility. Yet because they don’t speak in a way that reflects their concern and compassion, many Americans don’t trust them.

Americans know that outmoded redistribution yields poor results and does little for the pursuit of happiness. But there seems to be no conservative alternative that looks out for those struggling to get by.

Now Arthur Brooks, a bestselling author and the president of the American Enterprise Institute offers a bold new vision for conservatism as a movement for happiness, unity, and social justice.
