Episode 145: Francis Fukuyama on Donald Trump

Good evening, listeners! We have a special treat for you this week as host Richard Aldous welcomes Francis Fukuyama back to the show to discuss—who else?—Donald Trump.

Fukuyama describes this election as a watershed moment for our country, saying that Trump marks a break from the postwar consensus both in economic and foreign policy terms. He also looks at how these latest election results were informed by the political decay he described in his most recent book, Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalization of Democracy, before discussing what he sees as an ongoing—and global—backlash against globalization.
