Rank #1: Bradley Lecture Series Podcast: Conservative internationalism: Armed diplomacy under Jefferson, Polk, Truman, and Reagan with Henry Nau - AEI Podcast Channel

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Bradley Lecture Series Podcast, Henry Nau discusses “Conservative internationalism: Armed diplomacy under Jefferson, Polk, Truman, and Reagan.” Two schools of thought typically emerge when Americans debate their place in the world: a realist, nationalist school and a liberal internationalist school. In simple terms, they ask, “Are we to be ‘Fortress America,’ or are we to be the world’s policeman? Nau posits a third school of thought which he traces through four American presidencies, showing that conservative internationalism combines key objectives with the values and means of the other two schools. This lecture was originally given on November 4, 2013. Full details can be found on the original event page here.

Rank #6: Bradley Lecture Series Podcast: The betrayal of liberty on America’s campuses with Alan Charles Kors - AEI Podcast Channel

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Bradley Lecture Series Podcast, we’re revisiting “The Betrayal of Liberty on America’s Campus” by Alan Charles Kors of the University of Pennsylvania, originally given at AEI’s headquarters in October 1998. Professor Kors’ lecture provides valuable insight into the history of this problem. While there is plenty of blame to go around, Professor Kors makes the case that those whose roles we see least may have the strongest effect. In particular, he discusses the influence of mid-level college administrators who have been given ever broader authority over students’ lives, speech, and consciences from the time the students set foot on campus for orientation to the time they leave. The stakes involved are high, and Professor Kors calls on his listeners to be men and women for all seasons to resolve the crisis in higher education. This lecture was originally given on October 5, 1998. Full details can be found on the original event page here.

Rank #8: Bradley Lecture Series Podcast: What to expect when no one’s expecting with Jonathan Last - AEI Podcast Channel

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Bradley Lecture Series Podcast, Jonathan Last discusses his 2014 book “What to Expect When No One’s Expecting: America’s Coming Demographic Crisis.” Last predicted that, within two years, the world’s population would begin contracting sharply, with dire economic, political, and cultural implications. Last puts this predicament in perspective: Middle-class American women are now voluntarily reproducing at about the same rate as Chinese women, who have been subjected to 30 years of an official, brutal, one-child policy. Why is this happening, and how can we reverse the trend? Please join us in this Bradley Lecture as Last explores the roots and consequences of the population implosion, explaining why, as P. J. O’Rourke notes, “the only thing worse than having children is not having them.” This lecture was originally given on February 11, 2013. Full details can be found on the original event page here.

Rank #9: Bradley Lecture Series Podcast: The clash of civilizations with Samuel Huntington - AEI Podcast Channel

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode of the Bradley Lecture Series podcast features Professor Samuel Huntington on his famous essay, “The Clash of Civilizations.”  In this lecture, given at AEI one year before the essay’s publication in Foreign Affairs, Huntington makes the case that the post–Cold War order is entering a new phase wherein conflicts will no longer be defined ideology or by economics. Rather, conflicts will fundamentally be about culture and culture’s broadest level of identity short of what distinguished human beings from other species — civilization. A quarter century after its initial release, Huntington’s ideas are being revisited and gaining new followers around the world. This lecture was originally given on October 19, 1992. Full details can be found on the original event page here. To view a full list of the Bradley Lectures, see the Bradley Lectures page on the AEI website.

Rank #12: Bradley Lecture Series Podcast: Recovering the case for capitalism with Yuval Levin - AEI Podcast Channel

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Bradley Lecture Series Podcast, we’re revisiting “Recovering the Case for Capitalism” by Yuval Levin, Hertog Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, originally given at AEI’s headquarters in January of 2010. Though much has changed in the American political landscape since that time, many of the forces arrayed against capitalism remain the same. Levin’s lecture provides an affirmative argument for democratic capitalism. But it’s not an argument for a caricature, or for moral license, or for laissez-faire. It is an argument for the moral good of national wealth, of diffuse power, and of virtues encouraged by market pressures, but also by tradition, family, and love. Levin argues that the friends of capitalism must rise to its defense and understand its character as both an economic and a moral enterprise whose health and strength are essential to the future of the larger American enterprise. This lecture was originally given on January 11, 2010. Full details can be found on the original event page here.

Podcast cover

This episode of the Bradley Lecture Series podcast features Professor Christopher Jencks, now of Harvard University, and AEI’s Robert Doar.  In his lecture, Jencks evaluates the impact of major social welfare programs dating back to the New Deal, concluding that, contrary to popular opinion, they have done a better job over the past generations than most of us realize. Of course, social welfare policy in America has changed dramatically since this lecture was given in the summer of 1996, and, in the first section of this episode, AEI’s Morgridge Fellow in Poverty Studies Robert Doar discusses what reform has looked like since and puts Jencks’ lecture in context. This lecture was originally given on May 13, 1996. Full details can be found on the original event page here.

Podcast cover

Imagine the elites of China, Turkey, Britain, and all the other great powers of the day meeting in Davos in 1600 to discuss who among them would emerge as the world’s greatest economic power over the next few centuries. None would have even considered North America, and yet it is the United States that today produces the plurality of world GDP with less than 5 percent of the world’s population. How did that happen? In the excellent new book “Capitalism in America: A History” Alan Greenspan and Adrian Wooldridge provide the answer. Adrian recently joined me on the show to discuss his book, American and world economic history more broadly, and the lessons voters and policymakers should draw today. Adrian Wooldridge is the political editor and Bagehot columnist at The Economist and the author of “Measuring the Mind: Education and Psychology in England, 1860–1990.” You can follow him on Twitter @adwooldridge.
