Boix Book on Democratic Capitalism Featured in The Guardian

Thursday, Jul 25, 2019

Carles Boix's most recent book, Democratic Capitalism at the Crossroads: Technological Change and the Future of Politics, is featured in The Guardian's Stand Out of Our Light: politics and the big tech threat. Democratic Capitalism is one of two books that The Guardian describes as offering "fascinating takes on how we can combat anger and distraction online." Carles Boix is Robert Garrett Professor of Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University and a member of the CSDP Executive Committee.

“It should therefore be possible,” Boix argues, “to use our representative institutions to harness this massive buildup in wealth to smooth the technological transformations of the present and, in the process, to pursue the main collective objective – guaranteeing relatively equal life chances to all.”
