The Beginning of History

Speaker:

Francis Fukuyama
Stanford University

Interviewer:

JP Kloppers
Brandseye

Political scientist, political economist, and author Francis Fukuyama has spent the last three decades shocking the world with his political philosophy. Well-known for his book The End of History and the Last Man (1992), which argued that the worldwide spread of liberal democracies and free market capitalism may signal the end point of humanity's sociocultural evolution and become the final form of government, his subsequent book Trust: Social Virtues and Creation of Prosperity (1995) modified his earlier opinion to acknowledge that culture cannot be cleanly separated from economics. In conversation with Endeavor Entrepreneur and CEO of Brandseye JP Kloppers, Professor Fukuyama will speak about the rise of global populism and its effect on democratic institutions, technology, science, and the economy.
