In his new book, The End Is Near and It’s Going to Be
, Kevin D. Williamson examines the crisis of the modern
welfare state and demonstrates that the crucial political failures
of our time, from education to health care, are the direct result
of government monopolies providing and regulating these services.
Entitlement programs have promised far more than they can deliver,
and slow moving bureaucracies have stifled innovation and
efficiency in attempts to deliver on these failed promises. There
is, however, a light at the end of the tunnel, as millions of
Americans reject the status quo and turn to their own ingenuity to
create successful market-derived alternatives to these government
monopolies. Please join Kevin Williamson and Cato Institute senior
fellow Michael Tanner for an examination of the current state of
U.S. entitlement programs and a lively discussion of how the
free-market responds when the government fails.
