Does Wealth Bring Democracy?

Over his forty years of research on wealth and democracy, Stephen Krasner came to this conclusion: it’s near impossible for a country to become prosperous and democratic simultaneously. It’s an accomplishment achieved by very few countries.

How can a country acquire wealth and transition to democracy at the same time? Will wealth push a country towards democratization? Why is it so difficult for this process to occur? Dr. Krasner leads us through a review of the thoughts and findings of so many experts in this field, and finally, using these ideas on wealth and democracy, what future can we predict for China, the most formidable rival of the US.

There is much more than meets the eye when it comes to wealth and democracy. The coexistence of the two is by no means guaranteed. It can leave us at any time. Stephen Krasner's lecture will be a guiding light for all those aspiring to defend the delicate balance of wealth and democracy in the modern age.
