Julia Cagé in Conversation.

Economist Julia Cagé takes on the huge problem of election financing in The Price of Democracy: How Money Shapes Politics and What to Do About It. Looking at attempts to curb the influence of wealth in the U.S. and Europe, Cagé shows that it is possible to design better election systems to increase political participation and trust. She speaks about the new book and her vision for more representative and democratic governments. Cagé, an assistant professor of economics at Sciences Po in Paris, is also the author of Saving the Media: Capitalism, Crowdfunding, and Democracy.
