In this must watch video of approximately 35 minutes long, Reason's Ronald Bailey sat down with Charles Murray, one of America's most influential social policy thinkers, for a wide-ranging discussion on his widely discussed new book called Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010. The book argues that Americans are splitting into two divergent classes, and that this growing divide could end American life as we have known it. Also discussed is why he remains libertarian in his outlook, and whether younger Americans face an relentlessly negative future (the meat begins at around the 3:00 mark).
"Poverty's like everything else ... the more you pay for it the more you have."
