Western democracy has a credibility problem. A study of 17 Latin American countries showed that half the population doubts the practice of democracy and is actually convinced that democracy is a system organised for the rich. The author believes that, given the socio-economic disparities, we cannot afford to ignore this disaster in slow motion. The problems will not disappear unless we organise ourselves to solve them. A plea for a new 'Global Deal'.
