The United States has been shaped by three far-reaching political revolutions: Jeffersona€™s a€œrevolution of 1800, a€ the Civil War, and the New Deal. Each of these upheavals concluded with lasting institutional and cultural adjustments that set the stage for new phases of political and economic development. Are we on the verge of a new upheaval, a a€œfourth revolutiona€ that will reshape U.S. politics for decades to come? There are signs to suggest that we are. Americaa€™s Fourth Revolution describes the political upheaval that will overtake the United States over the next decade as a consequence of economic stagnation, the growth of government, and the exhaustion of post-war arrangements that formerly underpinned American prosperity and power. The inter-connected challenges of public debt, the retirement of the qbaby boomq generation, and slow economic growth have reached a point where they can no longer be addressed by incremental adjustments in taxes and spending, but will require profound changes in the role of government in American life. At the same time, the widening gulf between the two political parties and the entrenched power of interest groups will make it difficult to negotiate the changes needed to renew the system. Americaa€™s Fourth Revolution places this impending upheaval in historical context by reminding readers that Americans have faced and overcome similar challenges in the past and that they seem to resolve their deepest problems in relatively brief but intense periods of political conflict. In contrast to other books which claim that the United States is in decline, Americaa€™s Fourth Revolution argues that Americans will struggle over the next decade to form a governing coalition that will guide the nation on a path of renewed dynamism and prosperity.... or developments could throw the system into a terminal crisisa€”another recession perhaps, a stock market crash, the bankruptcy of a large city or financial institution, ... Adapted from a€œThe Fourth Revolution, a€ The New Criterion, June 2012.
