    Was it really better in the past?
    Moderator: Mark Battersby
    Donald Trump was elected in part on the notion that America’s current situation was worse than previous times. There seems to be a widespread sense of nostalgia for a better, earlier time. Was it really better back in the “good old days”? Or, is this just false memory syndrome?
