How to Fix Democracy

Oct 13, 2020

Mark Blyth is William R. Rhodes Professor of International Economics at Brown University. In this interview, he discusses how our economics are rife with anger and frustration. Blyth’s “angry-nomics” emerged from financial crises and a decline in social institutions, like unions, that give people feelings of stability and control. In this frank discussion of the conflicts between our economics and politics, Blyth offers several concrete recommendations to get capitalism to work for democracy instead of against it.
