Drawing from his book Rich, Free, and Miserable, Professor Brueggemann suggests that growing pressures Americans feel to work, compete, and consume have undermined our engagement in meaningful relationships and resulted in a widespread moral crisis. For individuals the effects include anxiety, exhaustion, anger, depression, obesity, divorce, addiction, debt, and rudeness, each of which has obtained startling levels of incidence. Even amidst the power of expanding market logic, however, the human resources of anger and hope among ordinary people offer viable alternatives. His recent research reveals how such people are responding intelligently to this situation. After the lecture, join Professor Brueggemann for lunch while enjoying the company of fellow Skiddies.
