This rich – but not avaricious or over-priced – volume offers wide-ranging analyses and critiques of the economic and political background to Donald Trump’s electoral success, the fallacies and failings of economic theory, business strategies and government policies that facilitated his populist appeal. The contributors demonstrate the explanatory power of a pluralistic heterodox political economy and its contribution to the critique of power and domination in an increasingly authoritarian and financialized age.
