We are faced with intersecting crises. The world economy has remained stagnant since 2008. The European project confronts a series of existential threats. Several Latin American economies are wracked by devastating economic imbalances. Even the Chinese juggernaut appears to be slowing. The natural world is groaning under the strain of capitalism’s ravenous appetite. And the most jarring political mobilisation that has arisen to meet these threats is a form of chauvinistic nativism. A political economy for our times must directly address these crises and attempt to grasp their interrelation and fundamental causes.
