FEATURING NANCY MACLEAN – The billionaire Koch brothers and the Republican Party have a dangerous agenda on multiple fronts and they’re not afraid to spend their vast economic resources to promote it. From suppressing voting rights of people of color, to decimating unions, privatizing public education, and more, there is a method to their madness, and it can be traced all the way back to the ideas of Nobel-prize winning economist James Buchanan.
Nancy MacLean, William Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University. She is also the award-winning author of Behind the Mask of Chivalry, and Freedom is Not Enough. Her new book is Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America.
