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.
