Populism Now! : The Case For Progressive Populism Paperback / softback


Populism can be a dirty word. Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have certainly given it a bad name.

But rather than associating it with demagoguery and exclusion, might we better see it as a backlash against free market globalisation?

Might it be harnessed as a positive force able to thrive in difficult times?

This timely and persuasive book exposes the failures of globalisation: greedy banks, predatory privatisation, corporate tax avoidance and a growing underclass of temporary overseas workers.

David McKnight argues that a progressive populism could address the genuine economic grievances of everyday people, without scapegoating immigrants or ethnic minorities.

In fact, a progressive form of populism may be the best way of defeating the racist backlash of right-wing populism.

It may also be the best way to save the planet. In a world where the super-rich get richer, one that is charged with hate-filled language as people look for someone else to blame, the case for progressive populism must be heard.

This important book helps give it voice.
