Robert Samuelson talked about his book, Untruth: Why the Conventional Wisdom Is (Almost Always) Wrong, published by AtRandom. The book is a collection of the author’s columns, which he called rebuttals of conventional wisdom. He talked about some of his articles, arguing that political gridlock is not undermining American democracy, that campaign contributions have not corrupted politics, and that the “service economy” is not turning America into a nation of hamburger flippers. He answered audience questions. close
