Michael P. Balzano is the author of Building a New Majority, published in February 2016, which provides candidates and the public the tools to better understand the complexities of the American workforce. The narrative follows the author, the son of working-class Italian immigrants, from his boyhood in New Haven, Connecticut, through his time as a high-school dropout and garbage collector to his return to school, where he earned a doctoral degree at Georgetown University.

His story attracted the attention of the Nixon White House. He was brought on board to communicate with ethnic and working-class voters as part of Nixon’s strategy to reach out to Roosevelt Democrats. Balzano performed this same function for President Ronald Reagan’s 1980 and 1984 campaigns and in President George H. W. Bush’s 1988 campaign.

Coming Up: Rounding out 2015 at the Prosperity Caucus

We’re starting to firm up the speaker schedule for the rest o the year, and we wanted to let everyone know who we’ll be hearing from in the coming months.

In October, we’ll hear from economist Garett Jones. Known for his research on how IQ determines productivity, Garrett holds positions at George Mason University and the Mercatus Center.

In November, Greg Ip will be discussing his new book “Foolproof: Why Safety Can Be Dangerous and How Danger Makes us Safe.”. Greg was the U.S. Economics Editor of the Economist and is now the chief economics commentator at the Wall Street Journal.

In December, FCC Commissioner Mike O’Reilly. Mike has a long history as a policy analyst for multiple U.S. Senate Committees, and is an expert on telecommunications.
