Inglehart says rise in Western right-wing politics tied more to culture than economics

a PSC In The News reference

"Elitism won't defeat Trumpism" - Washington Post. 08/09/2016.

This piece looks at the attitudes and values driving the rise of the political right in the West, citing a new paper by Ronald Inglehart and Pippa Norris which says that the key cause is "an angry and resentful counter-revolutionary backlash" to cultural shifts over the past five decades. The author says more left-leaning politicians must not "demean or ignore" the new right - but work to understand the root issues.
