The Social Breakdown: The Poverty of Family, Community, and Religious Life in America | LIVE STREAM

Social capital—the value inhering in our relationships and institutions—is in decline in America. Participation in community and civil society is withering. Relationships within our homes, associations, churches, and workplaces have weakened. We are less trusting of our neighbors and our government than ever before. America is suffering from mutually reinforcing crises of social isolation, nonparticipation, and distrust, leaving us lonely, resentful, and without a sense of purpose.

Join AEI’s Center on Opportunity and Social Mobility for a discussion of the state of social capital in America and the launch of a new research series, the Social Breakdown, which aims to uncover why America’s social fabric is breaking down and what we can do to rebuild social capital.
