McCloskey Speaker Series

Session: Has Decadence Rendered Us Happy and Comfortable or Stagnant and Disappointed?

Track:McCloskey Speaker Series
Date/Time:07/08/2020 3:00 PM MDT – 4:00 PM MDT

Featuring Ross Douthat, conservative political analyst, author, and New York Times columnist. His newest book, The Decadent Society: How We Became the Victims of Our Own Success, explores what happens when a rich and powerful society ceases advancing—how the combination of wealth and technological proficiency with economic stagnation, political stalemates, cultural exhaustion, and demographic decline creates a strange kind of “sustainable decadence”. Douthat dissects how we got here, how long this age of frustration might last and how our decadence might ultimately end.

Loved hanging out with you two tonight. And your shoes though‼️⚜️

You probably don’t remember my telling you that my Grandfather Arthur Atlas had Brevitt Shoes in England. Anyone who is British knows Brevitt shoes. @michelecardamone @melaniewernick and @jilliansreallife LOVE nice shoes.

Treating ourselves to a seriously delicious burrito breakfast at Bear Den Aspen and saying our goodbyes before Dr. Nikki flies off ... again. Wish she could pack me in her suitcase but there’s only room for flip flops and bikinis in there. Save a lounge chair in the sun for me. You never know when I’ll show up on your doorstep. Follow @drnicolatalkshealth to keep track of her adventures.
