Mr. Malanga talked about his book The New New Left: How American Politics Works Today, published by Ivan R. Dee. Steven Malanga said that the newest movement in liberal politics has rolled back reforms in major cities such as New York, loses money at an alarming rate, and hurts the people it attempts to help. It does so through unions petitioning for living-wage laws, which he says drive businesses elsewhere, and instituting government reforms established by those who stand to gain the most from those reforms. In his book Mr. Malanga outlined the ways in which the Left has strayed from the visions of the New Left of the 1960s and how it continues to gain strength within the national Democratic Party. After his discussion, he responded to audience questions. close
