We talk to author Amity Shlaes about her groundbreaking Great Society: A New History and why the most ambitious and well-meaning government initiative in our history had such catastrophic results. Amity’s remarks bear directly on the sudden vogue of socialism among today’s young voters.

Shlaes talks to Independent Women’s Forum Director of Cultural Programs and Senior Editor Charlotte Hays.
