Ceci Gallogly works in the American Enterprise Institute’s executive office where she manages logistics. If you couldn’t tell by her Linda Richman “Coffee Talk” accent, she spent her formative years in New Jersey. She studied economics at The George Washington University and was active in campus politics. For fun, she enjoys live music, seasonal rye-based cocktails, and Pilates. Pink is her signature color.
This week on Banter, Dr. William Galston joins the show to discuss his new book Anti-Pluralism: The Populist Threat to Liberal Democracy. Dr. Galston serves as the Ezra K. Zilkha Chair in the Governance Studies Program at the Brookings Institution. He is a former policy adviser to President Bill Clinton. The book describes populist movements in the United States and Europe and the economic, cultural, and societal factors that led us to this moment. Dr. Galston concludes the book with several policy recommendations that might stem the populist tide and strengthen liberal democracy.
