In episode 1, Mark speaks with Edward Luce, Chief US Columnist for the Financial Times, and author of The Retreat of Western Liberalism. Edward outlines how, since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the liberal order has effectively been the American order, and how that is now being undermined – both consciously and unwittingly – by President Trump. He discusses which pillars of that order are particularly under threat, and which countries are most vulnerable to disruption.
