For those of you in the New York area: Tomorrow night Nicholas Eberstadt will be arguing with William Galston about whether entitlements corrupt those they intend to sustain or a necessary, civic responsibility that support us all. The debate continues the debate begin in Eberstadt’s book A Nation of Takers: America’s Entitlement Epidemic, which includes a response by Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute.
Eberstadt holds the Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at American Enterprise Institute, but is better known to our readers as the husband of our writer — our very popular writer — Mary Eberstadt. Who is also author of The Loser Letters and Adam and Eve After the Pill.
The discussion is being held at the New School for Social Research from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday) night. Here is the information on the event, including information about registering.
