Info: Our guest is the editor of National Affairs Magazine, Yuval Levin. He talks about the magazine and website, which he describes as a quarterly journal of essays on public policy and political thought. Levin comments on one journalist’s description of him as the “most influential conservative intellectual of the Obama era.” He suggests that it is a challenging and exciting time for those such as himself who are interested in modernizing conservatism. He labels the recent affordable care act legislation as “dreadful,” and discusses the fundamental differences of opinion between the left and the right about the economics of health care. He comments on being awarded one of four Bradley Prizes from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation for his distinguished career in public service, policy scholarship, and journalism. Levin reflects on his days working for three years in the domestic policy office in the White House of President George W. Bush, and three years as the Executive Director of the President’s Council on Bioethics.
