Since its origins, democracy has been a work in progress. Today, many question its resilience. The Bertelsmann Foundation and Humanity in Action have teamed up with Andrew Keen, author of How to Fix the Future, to launch How to Fix Democracy: a video and podcast series exploring practical responses to the threats facing democracies around the world. Host Andrew Keen interviews prominent thinkers, writers, politicians, technologists, and business leaders who enlighten and challenge us as we seek the answers to How to Fix Democracy.
Host Andrew Keen joins Branko Milanovic, Visiting Presidential Professor at the City University of New York, for the beginning of Season 2.
Author of “Capitalism, Alone,” Branko Milanovic kicks off the second season of How to Fix Democracy. He discusses elements of different capitalist systems, such as in the United States and Denmark, and rejects the commonly held assumption that people universally value freedom over economic prosperity.
