Twilight of the Elites

chris-hayes-twilight-of-the-elites[1].jpg

A new book by liberal commentator Chris Hayes examines the widespread institutional failures over the last ten years…from government to Wall Street to the Catholic Church to major league baseball.  Hayes says this “lost decade” has led the public to distrust anyone in authority…and he points blame at a fundamental cherished  American ideal:  the meritocracy.

 

Chris Hayes: editor at large of The Nation and host of Up w/ Chris Hayes on MSNBC. His essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Time, The American Prospect, and The Guardian, among other publications.
