Arthur Brooks chats with former White House adviser David Axelrod on the 'Axe Files' about his time living in Europe, the U.S. Immigration debate, how to combat the current political polarization, and more.
Arthur Brooks is a leading conservative voice. As president of the American Enterprise Institute, he works with political, intellectual, and business leaders in Washington D.C. and around the country to defend liberty, increase opportunity, and expand access to the blessings of free enterprise for all.
An economist by training, Arthur has spent decades studying culture and public policy. His work in topics from technical economics to the sources of human happiness has established his reputation as a bestselling author, a prolific social scientist, and an original thinker.
Arthur’s path to Washington is anything but typical. Raised in liberal Seattle, he dropped out of college to play music and spent several years living in Spain. Three decades, three degrees, and three kids later, he is fighting to give everyone the same chance to build their lives and pursue happiness.
