Publisher's Summary

From Brexit, to Donald Trump, to extremist parties in Europe and the developing world, populism has dominated recent headlines. 

But what explains the rise of leaders who stoke nationalist anger in their countries, from Le Pen to Erdogan? How long will the populist wave last? Who will be the winners and losers in this climate, and how can we defend the values of democracy, free trade and international cooperation? 

No one is better suited to explore these questions than Ian Bremmer, the CEO of the Eurasia Group and acclaimed Time magazine columnist who was named LinkedIn's top influencer in 2017. Analysing the social, economic and technological forces fuelling this new wave of populism, Bremmer explains why we're witnessing a rejection of the democratic, global, cosmopolitan trends of the late 20th century. Us vs. Them is a definitive guide to navigating the shifting political landscape, for businesses looking to weather and survive the populist storm.

Completely missed the point.

With some delusion of objectivity he frames current political events with Marxist narrative and worst of all Judeo-Christian-liberal slave morality not to mention neo-conservative pilpul. He is not brave enough to analyse this issue let alone offer solutions, UBI? WTF dude?
