Age of Anger? June 2020

Blyth & Goodwin - plain talk you can understand - interesting to see how predictions are working out.

Why are measures of stress and anxiety on the rise, when economists and politicians tell us we have never had it so good?
And why are workers so angry about the current settlement?

While statistics tell us that the vast majority of people are getting steadily richer the world most of us experience day-in and day-out feels increasingly uncertain, unfair, and ever more expensive. In this conversation, Matt Goodwin explores these issues with Mark Blyth, a professor of political economy at Brown University and the author of a new book called "Angrynomics".

We discuss why workers have good reason to feel angry about the current settlement, how economies came unstuck, the distinction between 'primitive anger' and 'moral outrage', problems within Italy and the Eurozone, populism, the looming presidential election contest between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the state of economics and lots more.

Matt Goodwin is an author, speaker and academic. He talks to lots of institutions, governments and companies around the world about issues relating to political volatility. https://www.matthewjgoodwin.org/speak... He is the author of several books including, most recently, the Sunday Times bestseller, National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy https://amzn.to/3fbt6Y7
