Influences in American Politics
“What Rules America: Money, Morals or Myth? -- A Three-way Debate” was a program of Fordham University’s Center on Religion and Culture, held in the Pope Auditorium on the Lincoln Center Campus.
Three authors debated what ethos predominates in America. Robert Kuttner argued that it is the power of wealth. Robert George argued that it is America’s traditional moral commitments. Susan Jacoby argued that it is the nation’s shared myths. E.J. Dionne, Jr., moderated.
