What is the Future of American Politics?

Throughout American history historians, political scientists, and policymakers have frequently lamented the trajectory of the Presidency and argued for institutional reform. Some presidential observers argue that the Presidency is too powerful, while others claim it’s too constrained. This lecture will assess the health of the Presidency, forecast its likely future, and offer prescriptive renovations.

What Does The Future Hold for America’s Presidents?

The guiding questions of the session will look into whether the modern institution lives up to the Founders original vision, how the American presidency compares to other presidential systems around the world, what type of presidential aspirants will dominate the future, and what institutional changes would correct any modern deficits to Article 2 of the Constitution. The lecture will end with an argument for how to change how we both vet and select the President of the United States.
