Michael Lind

Author, The New Class War: Saving Democracy from the Managerial Elite

J.D. Vance

Co-Founder and Partner, Narya

Recent populist movements have shattered traditional party systems and brought turbulence to governments across Europe and North America. In The New Class War: Saving Democracy from the Managerial Elite, author Michael Lind argues the origins of this are complex, but the results have urgent consequences: western democracies are being torn apart by a new class war.

According to Lind, to save democracy western democracies must incorporate working-class majorities of all races, ethnicities, and creeds into decision making in politics, the economy, and culture. If they don't, they risk perpetuating a never-ending cycle of clashes between globalists and populists.

Join Hudson Institute for the live taping of episode one of season two of The Realignment podcast with Michael Lind and J.D. Vance on Lind's latest book.

Michael Lind is a professor of practice at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, the National Interest, Foreign Policy, and the International Economy. J.D. Vance is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where he studies the social impact of economic policy, globalization, and capital investment. He is best known as the author of the New York Times bestseller, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis.

The Realignment is a weekly podcast that explores the dramatic political realignment facing the United States. Conventional wisdom has been upended—with the unexpected election of President Trump, populist revolts across Europe, and the arrival of an aggressive and unapologetic China, we are living in a time of new challenges to the way America and our leaders approach policy. All this playing out while the social fabric of the country is fraying and politics continues to further divide us. The podcast is focused on cutting through the noise and unpacking the issues at the heart of this realignment with politicians, thought leaders, journalists, and more.

NOTE: This event is open to the press. All members of the media should RSVP to press@hudson.org.
