Industrial Policy and National Conservatism: A Debate
At the National Conservatism Conference on July 14, 2019, Oren Cass and Richard Reinsch debated the resolution, “America should adopt an industrial policy.” The debate directly addressed the economic challenges that a new kind of national conservatism will face, and suggests that there is more than one economic path to building a new conservative coalition.
