Nicholas Eberstadt: Men Without Work

I really enjoyed the opportunity to talk with author Nicholas Eberstadt about his new book, “Men Without Work: America’s Invisible Crisis“. He’s a political economist who holds the Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at the American Enterprise Institute.

In the book, Eberstadt contends there is a huge population of men — one-sixth of all prime-aged men in America — that is not only without jobs, but has stopped looking for jobs altogether. All of this amounts to a hidden time bomb with far reaching economic, social and political consequences.
