i have been watching this man's lectures on youtube for the past week,and i am totally smitten with professor blythe's ability to reduce complex and complicated human interactions in the form of political philosophies and economics in such an easy,and fresh manner.
this is the man who predicted TRUMP,and also BREXIT,and in this lecture he explains the new political and economic dynamics,and that the past few decades,which have been dominated by the policies of global neoliberalism,and which have caused untold horrors and suffering across the globe,is being replaced by what he is calling:neonationalism.
mark blythe is a political scientist and professor of international economics,and his lectures are fucking brilliant!
or maybe i just prefer to get all my politics and economics from shrek.
give this man an hour of your time.
you will not be disappointed.
