Has America Lost the Protestant Work Ethic?

Has America Lost the Protestant Work Ethic? December 7, 2012

I was staggering around the internet this afternoon and came across this video of me asking Dr Peter Berger (famed sociologist of religion) a question at the Faith Angle Forum in Miami, Florida, in November 2011.  Since there was no Faith Angle Forum this Fall, I am left to drink a little wine and watch videos of forums past and look forward to the next time I can visit Michael Cromartie’s fine event:

So what do you think?  Is the Protestant Work Ethic gone from the United States?  Do we need less Bergers and more Fords?  Or if you want to take up the second question: What accounts for the Asian American explosion in college fellowships?  These are not new questions, but I’m not sure I’ve ever heard terrific answers.  I think Dr Berger would say “we need more data.”
