Debating the Size of Government

Back in September, AEI’s Arthur Brooks, Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), and New York Times columnist David Brooks engaged in a lively exchange in print about the appropriate size of government in our country. You can see Arthur’s take here. But of course the debate isn’t over yet and, if anything, it has become more essential to our country’s discourse.  Tomorrow, AEI will inaugurate the American Enterprise Debates with Paul Ryan and David Brooks squaring off on this very issue.


The debate will be livestreamed here on the Enterprise Blog, followed by an exclusive online roundtable discussion featuring the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein and Jen Rubin and Reason magazine’s Peter Suderman.
