Glenn is joined by Arthur Brooks, a New York Times bestselling author of 11 books with topics like the Role of Government, Fairness, Economic Opportunity, Happiness, and the morality of Free Enterprise. Interestingly enough, Arthur Brooks spent 12 years of his life being a professional French Hornist playing with the Annapolis Brass Quintet as well as City Orchestra of Barcelona. He later went to teach Economics and Social Entrepreneurship at Syracuse University and has since then been serving as the President of the American Enterprise Institute, which is a nationally recognized think tank based in Washington, D.C., where he leads a community of scholars and supporters that are committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity, and strengthening free enterprise for all Americans. He is actually about to leave that role as he will transition to a new role at Harvard where he will be a Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School.
