The Cornell Program on Ethics and Public Life (EPL) is hosting "After the American Century: Fears and Hopes for America's Future," a semester-long series with visiting scholars that addresses widely prevalent worries that the new normal condition of the United States stifles important aspirations that were viable in the past.

The third lecture of the series, focusing on American fears of economic decline in the new global economy, is provided by Richard Freeman, professor of economics at Harvard.
