Bowling Alone or Together?

December 17, 2014 With Robert Putnam

Robert Putnam did the book (yes, “Bowling Alone”) which argued that we were losing our “connectedness” to one another and becoming isolated and selfish individuals. But then, in 2003, he discovered that we were reconnecting in new ways. Here, with a colleague, he explains why and how. Inevitably, one wonders how it stands now. And as you listen you might ask yourself whether he described you and yours accurately in his then new book “Better Together.”
