One of the major effects of the pandemic has been to bring to light the widespread economic insecurity that threatens the welfare of our society and to make apparent critical weaknesses of the nation’s safety net. In The Wolf at the Door: The Menace of Economic Insecurity and How to Fight It,” Professors Michael Graetz and Ian Shapiro diagnose the problems, probe their consequences, and propose practical recommendations for increasing jobs, improving wages, protecting families suffering from unemployment and seeking reemployment, and providing better health insurance and child care. They also guide us through the political strategies necessary to enact the necessary changes.
Please join us for a very special evening with Michael Graetz, Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, as he discusses his book. He will be joined by Jacob Lew, Former US Secretary of the Treasury and Visiting Professor of International and Public Affairs at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. The event will be moderated by Nicholas Lemann, Dean Emeritus and Joseph Pulitzer II and Edith Pulitzer Moore Professor of Journalism at Columbia Journalism School.
