Weak Links #5: digital campaigning, immigration, neoliberalism, business indices

“Weak Links?”

In 1973 Stanford Professor Mark Granovetter’s “the strength of weak ties” argued that weak links, between people with different opinions, help new and unfamiliar ideas spread.

We hope you enjoy Weak Links, our newsletter, in which we try to get outside the echo chamber to celebrate different views and new ways of thinking.

We’d love to know what you think.
