Mandates, boosters and global supply. Georgetown University's Lawrence Gostin talks about what is legal -- and what might be most effective -- when it comes to getting Americans vaccinated.
In the 1950s, a Gallup poll asked high school seniors if they considered themselves to be a very important person. Just 12 percent said yes. When the same question was asked 50 years later, 80 percent of students said they think they are very important. In a new book, columnist David Brooks explores this broad cultural shift toward inflated self worth. He argues that a central fallacy of modern life is that focus on one’s own importance and success leads to happiness and a meaningful life. Brooks argues instead that in order to have a truly fulfilling life, you must learn how to forget yourself.
- David Brooks Columnist with the "The New York Times" and author of several books, including "Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There" and "The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement."
