    Michael Lind talks about why we must renew America's social contract -- and how it's possible to learn from the past to do it again.

    More from New America's annual conference:

    The digital age brings flexibility and dynamism to the economy, but also challenges current forms of security and equity. The disruptions in our economy, for both good and ill, offer our leaders opportunities to reframe the essential social contract we have with each other. It also asks government to rethink its relationship with its citizens. From safety nets to operation systems, from personal identity to income inequality, we need to rewire that social contract. New America has been leading these conversations for more than a decade. In this election year, we are poised to play a pivotal role in how the leading candidates write the new social contract. As the primary season settles and the general election turns its focus on our most pressing challenges, we will bring together the most original thinking on the most important public issues, to create conversations you won't hear anywhere else.

    New America is dedicated to the renewal of American politics, prosperity, and purpose in the Digital Age. We carry out our mission as a nonprofit civic enterprise: an intellectual venture capital fund, think tank, technology laboratory, public forum, and media platform. Our hallmarks are big ideas, impartial analysis, pragmatic policy solutions, technological innovation, next generation politics, and creative engagement with broad audiences.

  • #45should | Memos to 45: Advice to the Next President Play all

    The next president of the United States will have survived one of the most tightly contested primary seasons in recent memory. After securing the party’s nomination in a fierce state-by-state battle, governing the country will be easy, right? Not likely. The next president will inherit a divided country and a destabilized world, and no matter how much experience the November winner brings to the job, it’s going to require deep stores of wisdom to lead the nation through the crises—known and as yet unknown—of the next four years.

    Of course, no president goes it alone, and with luck the next chief executive will bring onboard a diverse Cabinet to rely on for perspective. But you can never have too much help when leading the free world, so Slate, 92Y, and New America decided to team up to offer the next president some advice. Each Monday, starting today, we will publish a short video interview with a person who has useful perspective to offer president No. 45. In the following weeks, policymakers, writers, musicians, filmmakers, and others will offer pointers for the next commander in chief. Some of the advice will be sage and serious; some of it will be more playful; all of it, we hope, will frame the most important issues of the day for the president-to-be—and offer some solutions, too.

    If you have ideas for people we should interview as part of this series, please share them on Twitter, using the hashtag #45should. And share your own advice, too. The next chief executive is going to need all he or she can get.
