Learning From Europe

ID : 1100   
« back to classes page
Our country has not fared well in comparison with many countries in the last forty years, particularly the last twenty, according to a number of analyses completed on an annual basis. Sample areas include social mobility, happiness, size of the middle class, and infant mortality. We also spend more but get less for it in such areas as education and healthcare. At the same time we shine with our great medical centers and universities, and dynamism, innovation and industry. We will explore and evaluate input from Europe with the books The Nordic Theory of Everything by Finnish-American author Anu Partanen (HarperCollins, 2016), and Utopia for Realists by Dutchman Rutger Bregman (Bloomsbury, 2017). In the end we will evaluate if we need a sort of "Reverse Marshall Plan," at least in part, to help America’s future.
