Who Broke America’s Jobs Machine?

WHO BROKE AMERICA’S JOBS MACHINE?…. We talked last week about the cover story in the new issue of the Washington Monthly, in which Barry C. Lynn and Phillip Longman point to corporate consolidation, brought on by decades of weak antitrust enforcement in Washington, as an underlying cause of the awful American job market.

In about 10 minutes, the Monthly will co-host a discussion about the Lynn/Longman piece at the New America Foundation. You can watch a live webcast of the event right here.

The event is scheduled to run from 12:15 to 1:45pm (ET), and will be moderated by the Monthly‘s Editor in Chief, Paul Glastris.
