Nick Hanauer, a member of Democracy‘s board of advisers, and Eric Liu, member of our editorial committee, appeared on the April 26 episode of “Charlie Rose” to discuss their new book, The Gardens of Democracy
Hanauer and Liu appeared in the Winter 2011 issue of the journal with their essay “The ‘More What, Less How’ Government,” in which they argued for “more government when it comes to setting great goals and investing to achieve them; less government when it comes to how we collectively meet those goals.”
In their new book, Hanauer and Liu expand on the argument they made in this journal, re-imagining democracy in a way that calls upon all citizens to become involved and illustrating how to go about fostering that involvement.
