Populism, protest, and (austerity) policy: New episode of the ECONtribute-Wirtschaftspodcast


Could Brexit have been avoided? How was it possible for the EU referendum to take place in the first place? And are we in danger of history repeating itself? That’s what host Carolin Jackermeier discusses in the latest episode of our ECONtribute Wirtschaftspodcast with Thiemo Fetzer, ECONtribute Professor of Economics at the University of Bonn and the Univesity of Warwick. His research focuses on how crises arise and what their economic consequences are.

In the last few years, he has been following Brexit from a scientific perspective. We talk about how so many Britons became protest voters, what role the British government’s strict austerity policies played in this, and what we in Germany can learn from Brexit.

The podcast can be listened to on all major podcast platforms.
