Full-Time MBA Class: The Making of Policy Making
Populism is on the rise everywhere, in emerging countries as well as in mature democracies. It differs from country to country as it involves a strong personification of politics, but it has a common ground ideology that considers society to be ultimately separated in two homogeneous and antagonistic groups: the “pure people” and the “corrupt elite”. As such populism challenges the élites, notably the independent institutions that are at the core of the system of checks and balances preventing the dictatorship of majority. The welfare state is one of such institutions and plays a crucial role in addressing the instances raised by populists.
