Mark Blyth - The Global Financial Crisis: Ten Years On

Recommended Posts

From a talk given at the UCLA Center for Social Theory and Comparative History on 25 January 2018 (link). The videos label themselves as part of four as there are two further videos covering a talk by Adam Tooze (also well worth watching).

From part 2:


Welcome to global populism. Your debts are too high. Your wages are too low to pay off the debt and the inflation's too low to eat the debt. The left's response is to blame capital and globalisation and the right's response is to blame immigrants and globalisation. That's it.


Populism is the system reset, and there's a left wing one as well as a right wing one.
