View from the Top
D. Michael Lindsay, co-author of View from the Top: An Inside Look at How People in Power See and Shape the World, talked about the results of his ten-year study on power and leadership in America. Mr. Lindsay said that a few thousand people in the U.S. make decisions that impact the rest of us. He and his team conducted in-depth interviews with 550 government and business leaders to find out how they operated. After his remarks he was joined by his co-author, M.G. Hager, to answer questions from members of the audience. This “Evening Conversation” of The Trinity Forum was held in partnership with Gordon College at the National Press Club. close
