A decade now after the 2008 financial crisis, the cultural and psychological imprint that it left looks almost as deep as the one that followed the Great Depression. Its legacy includes a new radical politics on both the left and the right; epidemics of opioid abuse, suicides, and low birthrates; and widespread resentment, racial and gendered and otherwise, by those who felt especially left behind. Most importantly it saw the rise and global spread of populism. This book, analyses in depth the rise of Trump-era populism, on how the bailouts led directly to events such as Brexit and the 2016 election, and especially the global rise of populism and anti-elitism.
