A Conversation with

David Davenport

Author, How Public Policy Became War


FREE ADMISSION

Former President of Pepperdine University and current Hoover Institution Research Fellow David Davenport will discuss how in the past half-century American Presidents have declared war on a host of domestic problems — poverty, crime, drugs, terror — as a tactic to exert political will, and carry out their agendas.  

Consequently, he concludes that labeling these initiatives as “wars” created bold, urgent expressions of Executive power, rather than slower, steadier, and deliberative approaches to policymaking. It’s also shifted power away from what was the province of states and Congress, to the Presidency.
