Ost Published in Poland on Economic Populism in America

David Ost, professor of political science, had an article titled “Towards a New Economic Populism in America?” published an article in the Polish weekly Europa on March 30. The piece reviews post-election discussions urging the Democratic Party to present an inclusive economic message in a more emotional tone, and looks more generally at the relationship of politics and emotions.

Ost has lived extensively in Poland and written widely on Polish politics. He is the author of two books on Polish politics: “Solidarity and the Politics of Anti-Politics” and “The Defeat of Solidarity: Anger and Politics in Postcommunist Europe.” He has more than 40 articles published in journals, has contributed op-eds to the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune, and has been featured on the BBC, PBS, the “McNeil-Lehrer Report” and on numerous major radio stations.
