Abstract

In The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream, Tyler Cowen extends his previous work on economic stagnation into an examination of a broader sense of stasis that has enveloped US society and culture. While events of 2016 have made the book’s anticipation of an impending and dramatic shift less prescient than may otherwise have been the case, Dalibor Rohac nonetheless welcomes the book for its important observations about the end – whether here or to come – of US domestic complacency.
