Two Faces of Populism

 

Explanations for variants of populism are typically framed as a contest between culture and economics.Building on his recent book, The Populist TemptationProfessor Barry Eichengreen (University of California-Berkeley) considered the arguments for both in discussion with Professor Stephanie Rickard (LSE Government). Utilising data from British Election Surveys, he showed that populism, and Brexit in particular, is as much about economics as it is about culture and identity.
