Guest Session with Shikha Dalmia

About the talk on Policy Dialogue: 

‘What do Shiv Sena, Brexit and Donald Trump have in common? Shikha Dalmia, a political columnist based in America and a senior analyst with Reason Foundation will explain. They are all reactionary, right-wing nationalist movements, of course. And the core element that all such movements share regardless of place and time is an atavistic form of nativism that demonizes migrant workers as a threat to the economy and culture. Ultimately, this nativism rests on a Malthusian mindset that sees human beings as competitors for finite resources rather than a resource themselves that constantly grow the economic pie. Dalmia will argue why they are all wrong.”

Shikha Dalmia is a senior analyst at Reason Foundation, a nonprofit think tank advancing free minds and free markets.


Dalmia is a Bloomberg View contributor, a columnist at The Week, and writes regularly for Reason magazine. She also writes frequently for The Wall Street Journal and numerous other publications such as the Times of London, Time, USA Today and The Daily Beast. She previously s
erved as a columnist for Forbes and the Washington Examiner. She frequently appears on Fox Business Network, BBC Business Matters, MSNBC and other television and radio outlets.


From 1996 to 2004, Dalmia was as an award-winning editorial writer at the Detroit News, covering a variety of policy issues, including the environment, immigration, Social Security, welfare reform, health care and foreign policy. She was co-winner of the first 2009 Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism for her columns in Forbes and Reason.
Dalmia has also taught news writing courses at Michigan State University.
