When Does Democracy Fail? APB Speaker Mark Blyth has the Answer
04 Jan 2017
APB speaker Mark Blyth, a Political Economy Professor at Brown University, highlights in his recent Washington Post Op-Ed the foundation Democracy was built upon and how this foundation has transformed over the years. With these changes, Blyth explains why Democracy no longer provides people with what they want, therefore, making democracy “unstable.”
A political economist and widely read author, Blyth focuses his research on the use of macroeconomics in politics, and understanding why people still believe invalid economic ideas that have been contradicted. Known for his ability to clearly articulate complex financial and political issues, he has been globally recognized for his compelling ideas of how the economy is driven.
