Cato vice president for research Brink Lindsey will appear tonight on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss his new book, The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America’s Politics and Culture. Someone over at the Daily Show must have got wind of the fact that Brink’s book is a ripping good yarn that explains (finally!) how the separate reactions of Bible-thumpers and filthy hippies to the abundance of post-WWII America eventually blended to give us the mixed up, crazy, socially liberal, fiscally conservative world we live in today.
Watch Brink dazzle Jon tonight at 11 pm EST on Comedy Central.
Also, be sure to check out Brink’s refurbished website, wherein he dredges the depths of YouTube in search of the elusive essences of zeitgeists gone by.
