NPR Host and Fortune editor Matt Miller at Milken Institute on February 26, 2009

NPR host and Fortune editor Matt Miller will be discussing his new book The Tyranny of Dead Ideas: Letting Go of the Old Ways of Thinking to Unleash a New Prosperity at the Milken Institute on February 26, 2009 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

During the Forum, Miller will challenge the audience to shake up the status quo and thereby rethink their fundamental assumptions.

According to David Gergen, director of the Center for Public Leadership, Harvard University, and senior political analyst, CNN:

To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, our times are piled high with difficulty, and just as we must act anew we must think anew. Matt Miller is one of those few, invaluable voices who is able to reach beyond the truisms of yesterday to help us think anew about tomorrow.

The Forum is free but registration is required. Registration is available at https://www.milkeninstitute.org/store/registration_event.taf?eid=263 mattmiller97808050878711
