Professor Mark Blyth and macro fund manager Eric Lonergan discuss their forthcoming book on the political economy of anger with discussants, Professor Anand Menon and Dr. Carolina Alves.

It’s everywhere, but no one knows what it is. Do you know the four types of anger? Which one to listen to, which one to fear? Which one to be proud of, which one makes you feel ashamed? Anger is the arc that connects politics, economics, the private and the public. It is a global virus, which may also reveal a path for radical reform.
