The fall of the American empire

Hosted by

Zocalo Public Square columnist Joe Mathews sees the signs of a declining American empire all over. From skyrocketing national debt to trade wars to the authoritarian figure in the White House, American influence is waning on the world stage. How will that impact California? After all, we are a state that knows a thing or two about rebounding from disaster. A trip to Rome helped shed some light.
