Abstract

In a series of recent essays, Robert Rowland has outlined the characteristics of the liberal public sphere. The dual purposes of the liberal public sphere are to provide appropriate representation to all stakeholders and to in some sense make wise choices about public policy. The present study tests the applicability of the liberal public sphere via a consideration of the debt ceiling debate that dominated American politics in the summer of 2011.
