“With considerable sophistication and a good dose of humor, this book dissects the popular anger that has made our economics unsustainable and our politics dysfunctional. Lonergan and Blyth rightly call for a reset of our current model of capitalism. To their great credit, they also provide creative—and practical—ideas for moving forward.”
—Dani Rodrik, Harvard University
Why are measures of stress and anxiety on the rise when economists and politicians tell us we have never had it so good? In Angrynomics, Eric Lonergan and Mark Blyth explore the rising tide of anger—sometimes righteous and useful, sometimes destructive and ill-targeted—and propose radical new solutions for an increasingly polarized and confusing world. In today’s AEA video, watch Mark Blyth bring the humor and straightforward analysis of Angrynomics to a 2019 lecture at McMaster University on global Trumpism, unsustainable global inequality, and the forces underlying this rising anger.
