Episode 11: Timothy P. Carney & whether the American dream is dead
Play • 54 min

To kick off the second season of Givers, Doers, & Thinkers, Jeremy sits down with Timothy P. Carney, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where he works on economic competition, cronyism, civil society, localism, and religion in America. He is concurrently the commentary editor at the Washington Examiner.

Jeremy asks about Timothy’s latest book, “Alienated America: Why Some Places Thrive While Others Collapse,” how social capital patterns predict voting patterns—including fun insights on the midwestern Dutch voter—and why Timothy says the unchurching of culture is at the root of America's economic and social problems.  

You'll also hear from American Philanthropic managing consultant Kyle Vander Meulen. His extensive experience advising nonprofits on the best fundraising practices leaves him with a few helpful suggestions on welcoming new donors that you won't want to miss!

You can find Givers, Doers, & Thinkers here at Philanthropy Daily, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, Buzzsprout, and wherever you listen to podcasts.
