reTHINK Federalism: Is Our Constitution Upside-Down?

Jan. 17, 6-7 p.m., Ekstrom Library's Chao Auditorium - Michael Greve, professor at George Mason University's School of Law, will discuss his recent book, 'Our Upside-Down Constitution' (Harvard University Press, 2012).

Over the course of the nation's history, the U.S. Constitution's vision of federalism (in which local, state and federal governments compete to satisfy individual preferences) has given way to a cooperative, cartelized system that enables interest groups to leverage power at every level for their own benefit. Greve will discuss whether this "upside-down" vision can – and should – be reversed.

Free pocket-size U.S. Constitutions will be distributed to audience members. (More information)
