De vooraanstaande Australische econoom Nicholas Gruen (links in beeld), tevens algemeen directeur van het consultancybedrijf Lateral Economics, praat met journalist en publicist Hugh Pope (rechts in beeld) over The Keys to Democracy.

Pope: 'Athens is by far the most influential civilization that has ever been produced, in terms of half a football stadium of people producing eighty or ninety names that we are still invoking, and what do the Athenians ascribe this enormous cultural, and scientific, and philosophical achievement to? Sortition!'
