When Government Helped

Author Talk

Trudy Goldberg & Sheila Collins

January 28th @ 7PM@ The New Canaan Library
Co-Sponsored by the New Canaan Historical Society

When Government Helped

Goldberg and Collins will discuss how FDR and the New Deal viewed the role of government in American society and how the New Deal legacy of affirmative government survives and has helped us to prevent the Great Recession from descending into a Great Depression. At the same time, they emphasize that the Obama Administration could have learned more from the New Deal and that we ignore those lessons—both positive and negative—to our national detriment.  The authors will focus on three of the policy arenas covered in their comprehensive treatment of the two periods:  social security, arts and culture, and the environment.
