This keynote highlights the 'democratic sinkhole effect' in the Trump era. Surveying the eroding, not expanding floor of development and rights, it points to neoliberal austerity's role in creating global health crises. Proposing public health ethics and public goods approaches as possible approaches to repair the democratic sinkhole, the paper looks at how the 'public' have been redefined by data platform capitalism, undermining democracy's 'publicness ', while eroding public values of social decency and equality.
