THE IDEAS INDUSTRY How Pessimists, Partisans, and Plutocrats are Transforming the Marketplace of Ideas

by | Read by Adam Grupper

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Drezner discusses the substantial differences between public intellectuals and thought leaders, pointing out society's current obsession with the latter in the development of social ideas. Narrator Adam Grupper's deep voice and deliberate tone mesh well with Drezner's work, which frames this discussion through the lens of his specialty, foreign affairs. Grupper handles the complicated and nuanced explanations of international relations with authority. He glides over foreign terms smoothly and conveys critical points with strong emphasis and timing. Drezner helps listeners consider what is lost when a society embraces the one-size-fits-all approaches to solving problems that are characteristic of those he calls thought leaders. In addition to foreign affairs, he sees this phenomenon in economics, think tanks, and social media. L.E. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
