The rules of the global trading system have been used by private players to undermine the capacity of the nation-state to manage capitalism. As the citizenry rebels against an increasingly skewed economy, democracy is undermined on both flanks--first in the narrowing space for governance of the market and again as ultra-nationalism rejects democratic government itself. This dynamic was reversed, in very unusual circumstances, after World War II. What will it take for it to be reversed again?
