Nationalist movements are resurgent, most notably in Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and the election of Donald Trump in the United States, but also in China, India and Eastern Europe. Blending language, culture and ethnicity, the new nationalism coincides with and reinforces the declining influence of elite opinion, whether academics, scientists or journalists. Ip will discuss the origins of these trends, how durable they are, whether Canada will join them and what it means for economists and journalists.
