LIVE Web Forum Truth Decay: Impacts On the Public & Private Sectors When Objective Facts and Core Institutions Are Not Believed

The line between fact and fiction in American public life is becoming blurred. RAND has begun studying the causes and consequences of this "Truth Decay" phenomenon and how it affects democracy and political and civil discourse in the United States. Where basic facts and well-supported analyses of these facts were once generally accepted — such as the benefit of using vaccines to protect health — disagreement about even objective facts and well-supported analyses has swelled in recent years. In addition, a growing number of Americans view the U.S. government, media, and academia with new skepticism. These developments drive wedges between policymakers and neighbors alike. 

Join us on Thursday, March 29th at 11:00am Eastern for a web forum on Truth Decay. Dr. Jennifer Kavanagh, Associate Director, Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources Program, RAND Arroyo Center will provide insights and respond to attendee questions. Register here
