The Sounds of populism from Holland to Iowa

Hosted by

The Netherlands is a small country, but it's central to Europe, and today's parliamentary election is both a reflection of the recent past and a possible key to the future. Right-wing candidate Geert Wilders is running on the slogan "Make the Netherlands Ours Again." That's music to the ears of Brits who voted for Brexit, French who are listening to Marine Le Pen and, of course, to American supporters of President Trump. Western democracies are showing variations and different degrees of nationalism and populism, as well as religious- and racial- discrimination. Is it partly the failure of liberal elites to address the economic and social consequences of free trade and immigration?
