Angrynomics And The Plan To Save The World

Demonstrations in Hong Kong. Protests in Bangkok. An insurgency in Washington, DC. What do they all have in common? Anger. While economists tell us that the human race has never had it better, on the ground it feels like people are only getting progressively more stressed, anxious, and angry. Why?

Angrynomics proposes that the root cause of all this increased populism and polarization comes down to wealth and income inequality. Anger that has boiled over with nowhere else to go.

So at what point does economics becomes angrynomics? And more importantly, how do we fix it? Roshan Kanesan speak to Angrynomics co-author Mark Blyth to find out.

Mark Blyth is the co-author of Angrynomics. He's also a Professor of International Economics and Director of the Rhodes Center for International Economics and Finance, Brown University.
