In his book The New New Left: How American Politics Works Today, Steven Malanga, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and contributing editor of City Journal, shows that the New New Left is emerging as the most powerful element of the national Democratic Party coalition. He claims that whereas the New Left of the 1960s believed—idealistically, if somewhat naively—that government could solve the biggest problems of our times, the New New Left is much more narrowly and cynically focused on expanding government programs to increase its own power, pay, and perks. He asserts that a new dynamic has sprung up in American politics today: the contest between those who benefit from an ever-expanding public sector and those who pay for this bigger government—the tax-eaters vs. the taxpayers. Malanga will be joined in discussion by AEI F. K. Weyerhaeuser Fellow Steven F. Hayward.
