Mr. Elliott talked about his recent book, The Day Before Yesterday: Reconsidering America’s Past, Rediscovering the Present, published by Simon and Schuster. It focuses on why many citizens believe the 1940s and 1950s were a unique golden age in U.S. history and how this makes their expectations too high for the present which leads to a general cultural mood of misery. He also stressed that the economy is performing better than many people believe. close
