Mickey Kaus

Journalist and Author of "The End of Equality"

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion with Mickey Kaus, journalist and author of "The End of Equality," which chronicles the crises facing the middle class and the dynamics that drive much of the alienation and frustration displayed across the country. Hudson Institute Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead will moderate the conversation.

Mickey founded his blog, Kausfiles, at the start of the internet age and has written on many of the economic trends that have harmed the middle class over the past several decades. Mickey’s unorthodox positions on topics ranging from welfare reform to immigration defy conventional wisdom and have captured many of the frustrations experienced in outside-the-Beltway life.

This conversation is part of a series entitled, “The Future of the Middle Class” by Hudson Institute’s Center for the Future of Liberal Society. In this series, Hudson Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead will moderate discussions with thought-provoking policy experts about some of the most pressing challenges associated with rebuilding the economy and promoting the prosperity of America’s middle class.
