Edward Luce - The Retreat of Western Liberalism

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 7:00 pm

In Time to Start Thinking, Luce described the decline of Western values, a trajectory now confirmed with Brexit and the rise of Trump and European populism. In this trenchant and closely argued follow-up, Luce, the chief U.S. columnist for The Financial Times, expands on the crisis facing liberal democracy. Putting today’s political and economic challenges in a broad historical context, Luce looks back to the rise of the industrial west, showing that since the end of the Cold War we’ve grown into a dangerously destabilizing complacency. We can’t take democracy for granted, he believes, and democracy in turn depends on a firm economic foundation that produces gains for the majority of its citizens.
