Smith Soc Treks to Scottsdale for "Parties in the U.S.A."

June 12, 2017

The Adam Smith Society hosted the fourth event of 2016-17 in the Smith Soc Treks series from June 8-10.

Members traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona for a series of seminar discussions under the theme "Parties in the U.S.A." The trek's program was led by two political scientists, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow James Ceaser of the University of Virginia, who wrote Presidential Selection, the defining study on the potential of populism to reshape how political parties choose their presidential nominees, and Manhattan Institute Fellow Daniel DiSalvo of theCity College of New York, author of Engines of Change, a recent book on changing coalitions within political parties. Ceasar and DiSalvo led discussions on party reform, the candidate nomination process, the manner in which parties change, the role of populism and Social Class in shaping a new political divide, how parties act in Congress, and party polarization.
