Tom Jenney on ‘American Futures’

The king welcomes Tom Jenney, author of a new “choose your adventure” style book, American Futures. Here’s the premise: For one decade, American government is transformed according to one of 14 political visions. You can then choose a random ending to discover how things turn out in America over the course of the next six decades. How would “progressive social democracy” shape up against “nationalist conservatism?” What about “anarcho-syndicalism” vs. “authoritarian mercantilism?” Choose your future, America!

Tom has worked as a think tanker, fundraiser, grassroots organizer, and lobbyist in DC and Arizona. He’s taught Government, Economics, and Spanish to high schoolers, and earned degrees in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Georgetown University.
