After thoughtful consideration, and out of general caution for COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone the remaining public events at Heilbroner this semester until further notice. Please subscribe to our newsletter to get updates: capitalismstudies.org/subscribe.

------

A multigenerational saga of two families, who rose from immigrant roots to the pinnacle of wealth and power, that tracks the unraveling of American democracy.

In American Oligarchs, award-winning investigative journalist Andrea Bernstein tells the story of the Trump and Kushner families like never before. Their journey to the White House is a story of survival and loss, crime and betrayal, that stretches from the Klondike Gold Rush, through Nazi-occupied Poland and across the American Century, to our new gilded age. In building and maintaining their dynastic wealth, these families came to embody the rising nationalism and inequality that has pushed the United States to the brink of oligarchy.

Presented by the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School for Social Research
