How to Fix Democracy

Jun 5, 2020

Individual Choice 

Gideon Rachman is the chief foreign affairs columnist for the Financial Times. He was previously at the Economist for fifteen years, during which time he was a foreign correspondent in Brussels, Washington, and Bangkok, and editor of the business and Asia sections. In this interview with Andrew Keen, Rachman discusses how globalization has deepened conflict between capitalism and democracy. Individual choice is at the core of both capitalism and democracy, and so the two work better together than it may seem today, when anti-democratic, anti-globalist politics are emerging in many democratic, free market countries.
