National Review vs The Nation: Is the US a Socialist Nation?

In part three of a three-part debate series between The Nation‘s Chris Hayes and Reihan Salam of the National Review, the two journalists discuss whether the US is moving towards socialism as a nation. “Compared to where we were in 1900, I think the United States is pretty clearly socialist,” says Salam. He argues that the country “is getting to the point where we’re not going to be able to reverse some of the moves in the direction towards a socialist economy.” Hayes points out that socialism has a lot of different meanings but believes that America should be moving towards social democracy.
