Be a fly on the wall as GDI’s Executive Director, Prof David Hulme, interviews Prof Dani Rodrik, Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, about globalisation, inequality and trade, as well as the sociology of economists, how the decay of norms in liberal democracies might impact the rest of the world, what to be concerned about for India, and why China is always a surprise. They also discuss how Prof Rodrik’s research has led to an examination of populism, how populism differs in the developed and developing worlds, and how in most of the latter, populism is not “true” populism in its historical sense or definition.
