Gordon Bajnai was the prime minister of Hungary from 2009 to 2010.
Bajnai took charge of Hungary in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis and lead the country through an incredibly difficult period in its history.
As prime minister, Gordon was the last socially democratic leader of Hungary before the country took a turn towards a more right-wing, populist and now largely autocratic regime. He is now the chair of global investment firm Campbell Lutyens.
Gordon Bajnai joined Misha Zelinsky for a fascinating discussion about Brexit and the rise of populism, the role economics plays in politics, the march of nationalism in Europe and just how fragile democracy really is.
