Capitalism doesn’t work without democracy, so it’s particularly concerning that polarization and fundamentalism are threatening the underlying principles that make American democracy possible. A book by Northwestern’s Morton Schapiro and Gary Saul Morson called Minds Wide Shut explores the forces that are destroying the open-mindedness democracy requires. On this episode of the Capitalisn’t podcast, hosts Luigi Zingales and Bethany McLean talk with them about their book and discuss solutions.
