The political economy of anger

Professor Mark Blyth and Eric Lonergan launch their new book on the “Political Economy of Anger” held at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR). 2 Dean Trench Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3HE on 5 February 2019.

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.

The event will begin at 12.30 with a light lunch, and the discussion will last from 1pm to 3pm. Discussants are Professor Anand Menon and Dr Caroline Alves. You can read more about the event here. If you are interested in attending, please contact

Venue: 2 Dean Trench Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3HE

Date and time: 1pm – 3pm, 5 February 2019.
