Did the pandemic signal the end of the American era? | The Bottom Line – Al Jazeera

Canadian-American anthropologist Wade Davis holds a mirror up to the United States and sees a society in decline.

Davis argues that the US dominated the world in the post-WWII era because Americans came out of the war with a sense of common purpose. A vibrant, educated middle class dominated.

But now America’s social fabric is damaged, according to Wade. The top 1 percent have greater wealth than the bottom 90 percent and the promise of a decent life for a working family is shattered.

Join host Steve Clemons in a conversation that looks at today’s America, inside out.
