Inequalities, growth and the future of liberal democracies

Policy Brief

03/10/2017

Waves of suffering in the form of unemployment and destruction of wealth have transformed the social cartography of the Western world and have led to a true geopolitical recession. The coordinates of the political agenda are shifting, old conflicts are emerging and new cleavages are opening up. Once again, the distribution of wealth, inequality and their effects are at the centre of public debate.

Les vagues de souffrance dues au chômage et à la destruction de richesses ont transformé la cartographie sociale du monde occidental et ont conduit à une véritable récession géopolitique. Les coordonnées de l’agenda politique changent, d’anciens conflits apparaissent et de nouveaux clivages s’ouvrent. Encore une fois, la répartition des richesses, des inégalités et leurs effets sont au centre du débat public.
