AN INTELLIGENT TIMES EVENT
Intelligent Times is a live event series collaboration between The New York Times and Intelligence Squared, bringing together leading New York Times journalists and thought leaders to discuss the key issues facing the globe today.
Thomas Friedman has been called ‘the most influential columnist in America’. The Financial Times has described him as a ‘global star’ and he has won the Pulitzer Prize three times. On October 6, as part of our ‘Intelligent Times’ series – a partnership between Intelligence Squared and The New York Times – Friedman will be appearing on the Intelligence Squared stage less than a month before Americans go to the polls to elect their next president.
In conversation with ITV’s political editor Robert Peston, one of Britain’s leading journalists and broadcasters, Friedman will examine what is likely to be the most consequential Presidential elections of our times. Will enough Americans rally round President Trump to give him a second term, despite the innumerable scandals that have beset his administration? Or will the Democrats find a way to send him packing? And with the campaign already shaping up to be more bitter and divisive than any other in history, is there any hope for America’s fractured politics?
Join us at the Barbican Centre and hear from two of the sharpest journalistic minds on either side of the Atlantic.
