Description

George Lakoff – Co Founder & Senior Fellow, Rockridge Institute and Author of “The Political Mind: Why You Can’t Understand 21st Century American Politics with an 18th Century Brain”

George Lakoff believes that progressives have been fighting a losing battle in America for the last 30 years largely because the majority of citizens vote against their own self interests.

Lakoff, the best selling author of “Don’t Think on an Elephant” helps frame the debate for the upcoming Presidential election and explains how our brain really works.
