By the time the public becomes aware and engaged on a certain issue, the problem might well have passed its peak. Consider the two issues that most people believe are fueling populism in the Western world: fears about immigrants and a lack of economic opportunity. In both cases, the crisis appears to be over, but the fury remains.In 2018, about 115,000 people crossed the Mediterranean to seek entry into Europe, an 89 percent drop from the 2015 figure.In the United States, the pattern is somewhat similar. When Trump was on the campaign trail he suggested that the actual unemployment rate in America might be as high as 42 percent.The U.S. unemployment rate, 3.6 percent, is at its lowest point in half a century.Whenever crises flare up in liberal, democratic, capitalist societies, there is a tendency to blame the political and economic systems.
