In the latest episode of the Banter Podcast, AEI Scholar Nick Eberstadt sits down to discuss his new book, Nation of Takers, and talk all things entitlements – how the government’s role has changed, how large entitlements have grown, and how entitlements have changed the American character. Some of his findings might surprise you. Nick marshals an incredibly detailed knowledge of the economic and moral issues surrounding the country’s welfare programs, while still keeping the issues clear. Even Andrew manages to keep up. Look for his book out at the end of the month.
