Can I Have A Word?

"Has Populism Won?" co-author Daniel Drache on the war against liberal democracy

We've seen a disturbing (to some!) trend of populist leaders riding waves of grievance to power: Duterte, Trump, Orban, and now a leader of the opposition in Canada who is seeking to go full populist. Why is populism succeeding, what does it mean for societies, and how can it be counteracted? All those questions are part of a new book by Daniel Drache and Marc Froese called "Has Populism Won? The War on Liberal Democracy." We talk about it all.
