With the presidential campaigns touching on equality, freedom, and the nature of American democracy but not fully exploring these ideas, the Cornell Program on Ethics and Public Life is hosting a series with visiting Scholars on "Deep Issues of the 2012 Elections: Equality, Liberty and Democracy."

The series begins with a lecture by Jacob Hacker of the Yale Political Science Department, presenting his view of how American politics undermines the American dream and how this trend can be reversed.
