What puts the “pop” in populist rhetoric? by Donald R. LaMagdeleine

The last eight years have been hard on the West, not to mention the globe. Since 2008 a global economic crisis that originated in the US has eliminated tens of billions of capital from which no economy has fully recovered. Largely as a result of the neoliberal economic policy “wisdom” that governs the most powerful nations and international financial institutions, fiscal austerity has largely been the order of the day. Most notably, Greece narrowly avoided exiting from the EU and reverting to the drachma, which many speculated would potentially cast both Greece and the EU into a sharp tailspin. Donald R.
