Abstract

Over the course of this election, Donald Trump’s campaign slogan has been to ‘make America great again’, and he has largely blamed other countries and immigrants for reducing the country’s agency and power. Why have so many Americans seized on this rhetoric? Dennis J. Snower argues that the government has failed to help many Americans to acquire new skills in the face of technological change – something that other OECD countries are far more focused on. It is this policy failure, he writes, which has helped Donald Trump to gain the support of many of those who feel left behind.
