    The model of Western democracy is broken: unemployment stats questioned

    The model of Western-style democracy is now broken. Exhibit Number One is Donald Trump, but there's lots of other evidence too.

    By Gwynne Dyer - If the model is broken, should you try to fix it, or scrap it and get a new one? In questions of technology, increasingly the answer is: scrap it.
