Speaker: Steven Hill, political writer and reformer, author of Europe's Promise: Why the European Way Is the Best Hope in an Insecure Age
Steven Hill contends that a quiet revolution has been occurring in post-World War II Europe. A world power emerging across the Atlantic is rewriting the rules for how a modern society should provide economic security, environmental sustainability and global stability. For a decade Mr. Hill has traveled widely to understand this uniquely European way of life, including its response to the current economic crisis.
Steven Hill's articles and commentaries have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, Guardian, Financial Times, New York Daily News, The Nation, Salon.com, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee and other leading publications. His previous books include 10 Steps to Repair American Democracy (2006), Fixing Elections: The Failure of America's Winner Take All Politics (2003) and Whose Vote Counts (with Rob Richie, 2001). Mr. Hill has appeared on national and local radio and television programs, and has lectured widely in the United States and Europe. He has been a leading force for political reform in the United States for many years. He is a graduate of Yale University.
