The Economic Determinants of Populism
In the western world, the so-called “populist” movements have been gaining a great popular support, confirmed by electoral results of the last two years. The event jointly organized by IAI and Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF) explores the economic and financial origins of the populism surge in Europe. What has been the role of the financial crisis and the globalization? Has the employment of the voters influenced their choices?
Among the discussants: Sascha O. Becker, Carlo Bastasin, Luigi Guiso, Paolo Guerrieri, Franco Passacantando and Nathalie Tocci.
