What is driving American decline, and what does it mean for the world?

Long-time foreign correspondent Nick Bryant’s most recent posting took him to New York City to cover the Trump years. In his compelling analysis of American history and politics,Nick finds the roots of current polarisation and conflict in its history. If the American experiment is failing, what does this mean in for a world order with American power and influence at its heart? Pressing global issues such as current conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine, the world’s ability to act on climate change, the dangers of AI or threats posed by China and Russia are all held hostage by the failure of the American experiment.

Learn from this renowned reporter as he discusses how the hate, divisiveness and paranoia of contemporary American politics are central to the nation’s story. In conversation with ABC RN’s Geraldine Doogue.
