Abstract: Held over the course of three days, the conference took place on the Kenyon campus in Gambier, Ohio, and involved broad student, faculty, and campus participation. The conference included public panels and private discussions, with participants from a variety of fields: journalists, academics from a variety of disciplines, political actors, policy analysts, and representatives of non-governmental organizations involved in the work of democratization. Panels looked at the political, economic, and social aspects of democracy, as well as how or to what extent the promotion of democracy coheres with the principles and values of the United States. While recent developments in the Middle East made the conference topic timely, panelists considered a broad spectrum of regions and questions, including: What are the prospects for democracy in the Middle East, after the Arab Spring? Is it in America's national security interest to promote democracy abroad? What can we learn from experiences with democracy promotion outside the Middle East? What are the underpinnings or prerequisites of successful liberal democracies? What are the practical impediments to the further spread of democracy?

Robert Putnam: Inequality of Opportunity; The Politics of Economic Inequality conference (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Robert Putnam: Inequality of Opportunity; The Politics of Economic Inequality conference
Author: Robert Putnam
Abstract: "Inequality of Opportunity" • Robert Putnam, Harvard University • Introduced by Max Rappoport (’14) In his Wall Street Journal (April 15, 2014) column, “A Bipartisan Consensus on Income Inequality?” William Galston thoughtfully summarized Robert Putnam’s speech. He wrote that Putnam “spoke movingly about the differences between growing up in securely middle-class families and in families living on the edge of poverty.” Galston added: “It was impossible to come away from Mr. Putnam's talk believing that America's children enjoy anything like equal opportunity to succeed. But one could have reached a similar conclusion—and many did—from Charles Murray's 2012 book Coming Apart, which chronicled the decline of the white working class. Messrs. Murray and Putnam disagree on both diagnosis and prescription: Mr. Murray emphasizes cultural change as a reason for the decline, Mr. Putnam the collapse of the industrial economy. But on the level of describing the gap between top and bottom—qualitative and quantitative—they largely agree. In a country that cares about opportunity, that agreement matters.” This talk was the most popular of all the conference sessions

Abstract: Panel: Public Narratives about Inequality • Ross Douthat, New York Times • Jim Tankersley, Washington Post • Lizzie O’Leary, Marketplace • Moderated by Jay Corrigan, Professor of Economics This standing-room-only panel event highlighted challenges of reporting on economic inequality—from the concern that politicians dictate the terms of the debate to the depth of coverage.

Austan Goolsbee: Inequality and the Market; keynote address at the Politics of Economic Inequality conference (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Austan Goolsbee: Inequality and the Market; keynote address at the Politics of Economic Inequality conference
Author: Austan Goolsbee
Abstract: "Inequality and the Market" • Austan Goolsbee, University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers to President Obama • Introduced by Eleanor Ritchie (‘14) As a counterpoint to the Holz-Eakin talk the night before, Goolsbee argued that income inequality does exist and that government should intervene through such measures as education support, infrastructure investment, and tax reforms, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. Both Goolsbee and Holtz-Eakin served as advisors to presidential candidates during 2008 and frequently faced each other on talk shows, making for a lively contrast in both talks. Attendance: 350.
