A good word for “populism”

In Uncategorized on 26/03/2017 at 5:36 am

In S’pore the ang moh tua kees like Kitsten Han and Mad Dog Chee share something in common with the PAP: “populism” is a dirty word. Read the link as it shows why a “populist” policy can be the “right” policy.

From NYT Dealbook (thru I’m sure gritted teeth as they are Hilary-lovers) another example where “populism” is good:

“We believe that populism’s role in shaping economic conditions will probably be more powerful than classic monetary and fiscal policies (as well as a big influence on fiscal policies).”

  1. What’s populism anyway? Does it have to be something that majority of the population want? Or something that a minority is vocally agitating for which the minority does not mind but is willing to trade off on because it’s not a high priority to them.
