What is the European Forum for New Ideas?

The European Forum for New Ideas is one of the largest conferences in this part of the continent, dedicated to global trends, new ideas and the future of Europe. Business representatives, charismatic speakers, leaders and policy-makers as well as authorities from the world of culture and science discuss the most important challenges for business and societies in a changing world, global trends and the future shape of the European Union during dozens of events, panel discussions, open meetings, counterpoints or night owl discussions. Every year, the Forum gathers over a thousand participants – representatives of the world of business, science, culture and administration, Polish and European alike. The European Forum for New Ideas has been organised since 2011 by the Polish Confederation Lewiatan in cooperation with BusinessEurope and the city of Sopot.

New authoritarianism: Trump, populism and the tyranny of experts

New authoritarianism: Trump, populism and the tyranny of experts

Populism is the idea that politics should be responsive to the people. From the very moment the term was coined in 1890s America, political elites have branded it a dirty word. America's Populist Party, from which the term derives, advocated political heresies like the government regulation of railroad monopolies, monetary inflation to combat a protracted economic depression, the direct popular election of senators, and a progressive income tax to shift the burden of taxation onto the shoulders of the rich. Though the American populists never won a presidential election, over the next fifty years all of their major policy demands were transformed from outsider political demands into mainstream political common sense. The populists were dismissed, vilified, and finally suppressed, but they were right.
