      The case for greater meritocracy in the United States is not made in this book. Doubts also attach to the “liberal” angle, as far as redistribution goes. The post-WWII social-democratic era may have ended in the s, but the constraints on dynastic wealth formation in LMC nations were always questionable and have become much more so today. The book’s core empirical contribution lies in Mounk’s analysis, together with Roberto Stefan Foa, of data gathered in the World Values Survey. They assess that, in multiple countries, younger people are attracted to authoritarian alternatives to democracy and to political parties and movements that are willing to disregard basic democratic.

      The term “post-democracy” refers to the recent process where democratic institutions have been hollowed out and citizens increasingly excluded from decision-making. But a serious response to this problem can’t just denounce its “populist” symptoms — rather, we need to examine the deeper social ills stemming from economic liberalism itself. As the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry unfolds in Washington, there is growing and understandable concern about the erosion of governing institutions and liberal democratic norms. Since , scholars have addressed the prospect of Donald Trump’s threat to American democracy, as well as the threat of other populists in Western Europe.

    The roots of Liberal democracy and the invention of viable institutions to put this idea into practice have long histories that had nothing to do with how they came out. In this light, I shall argue that there was nothing inevitable about the rise of liberal politics, values, and ideas in the western world. States are some of the main institutions that affect society’s interactions with the ecosystems that sustain human and non-human life on this planet. And just as the political economy can generate crises that re-shape the state in powerful ways, so can the political ecology.
