FCC club lunch with David FRUM and Ruy TEIXEIRA
Author / Columnist
Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
Topic: Demographic change and the future of American politics
David FRUM and Ruy TEIXEIRA, leading American political analysts, will discuss how demographic trends are transforming American politics, society and culture. These changes are large, important and will produce, over time, an America that is far different, and with different policies, than the one that exists today. FRUM, a conservative, and TEIXEIRA, a liberal, will discuss and debate these long-term changes from their differing perspectives. The speakers will provide insight on the political process and how the U.S. arrives at certain policies vis a vis the rest of the world, including China.
David FRUM is the author of six books, most recently, Comeback: Conservatism That Can Win Again. In 2007, the British newspaper Daily Telegraph named him one of America’s fifty most influential conservatives. Mr. FRUM is a regular commentator on public radio’s Marketplace and a columnist for The Week and Canada’s National Post. He also edits the NewMajority.com website. He is currently at work on a book about the decline of the Republican Party in California since 1990.
