"One Billion Americans"


"In his new book One Billion Americans, Matthew Yglesias, the Vox co-founder and gadfly progressive, goes wild. He shape-shifts from MAGA enthusiast to immigration devotee, from Swedish-style democratic socialist to Cold War nationalist to Focus on the Family stalwart. Fortunately, he manages to do this trick while advancing a coherent argument. There’s a reason that Yglesias has been affably interviewed by Glenn Beck and Tyler Cowen, Ben Shapiro and Ezra Klein. There’s something for everyone to like in this heterodox book—which means there’s also something for everyone to troll."

Read the rest of Kay Hymowitz's review of the book in City Journal.
