Democracy in Chains
Professor Nancy MacLean talked about her book Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America, in which she examines the work of the late Nobel Prize-winning economist James McGill Buchanan. In her book, she argues that Mr. Buchanan is the source of what she calls the political right’s current ideology of separating the country between “makers” and “takers” and promoting the political powers of the wealthy while disenfranchising the rest of the country. close
