Professor Benjamin Page of Northwestern is a renowned expert in democratic theory, public opinion, and policy making. His recent book "Democracy in America?" (co-authored with Martin Gilens) discusses how the United States has failed to respond to a rapidly changing economy and has exacerbated inequality.
