In the wake of Obama's call for change, Matt Miller has been a longtime advocate for re-evaluating our government's foundation to ensure a safe and secure future for all Americans.
He discusses the American attitude of entitlement and excess and says it has led us down the path to financial ruin and threatened our viability as the world leader.
Miller outlines how to overcome these "dead ideas" to help our nation and its people flourish.
He served as an aide to President Clinton and is trusted on both sides of the aisle as a visionary with solutions.
Matthew Miller is an American journalist, and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a monthly columnist for Fortune, regular contributor to The New York Times Magazine and The Atlantic Monthly, and author of The Two Percent Solution.
He also appears regularly on CNN and MSNBC. He previously served as a corporate consultant and as an advisor to the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton administration. Miller is a senior advisor to global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company and to the firm's in-house economics think-tank McKinsey Global Institute.
Miller supports universal health insurance, increased education spending, school vouchers and other goals detailed in his book. He was also a supporter of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and remains supportive of the Iraq War.
He is moderator and co-host of the nationally syndicated public radio program Left, Right & Center, representing the center.
Matt Miller says the United States is at a point in its history similar to 1928, when fundamental thinking about the structure of society and the role of government began to shift, catalyzed by an economic crisis and rapid technological change.
