Brexit, Trump, Modi. Nationalism and anti-globalization in the form of populism has been emerging across the globe. The public has demonstrated a widespread distrust in the political establishment’s management of globalization by turning away from it. Issues such as xenophobia and wealth inequality are perceived as threats. But the underlying drive behind populism is in fact globalization and the search for simple answers — yes or no — to address complex global issues.
