As the 2016 presidential campaign season gets underway in earnest, Changing Course looks back to the fall of 2014 and follows a small group of friends and neighbors as they struggle to come to grips with America’s steady, but slow growing economy and what it could mean for each of their futures. As the book progresses and politicians vie for their votes in the upcoming midterm elections, the characters in Changing Course begin to learn about and debate a series of ideas that they hope will grow the economy more quickly, create more jobs, improve the lives of the people they care about, and end what they believe is quickly becoming America’s “new normal.”
