Healing American Democracy: Can “Constitutional Localism” & Tech Break the DC Logjam?
Host David Bloom talks with authors Mike Hais and Morley Winograd about their latest book, “Healing American Democracy: Going Local.” It proposes that young Americans (Millennials and their successor generation, the “Plurals”) can bypass the partisan gridlock afflicting national politics by putting “Think Globally, Act Locally” to work in a big way. They propose harnessing the civic-minded younger generations to empower local solutions while protecting Constitutional rights. Big Data and sharing technologies can be used to power the local solutions, while making it easier for other jurisdictions to discover and replicate successful approaches.
