As concern over Covid-19 shifts from a global health crisis to a global economic crisis we speak to political scientist Mark Blyth, author of the forthcoming book 'Angrynomics' about what this pandemic really means for the economy. How long can we afford lockdown? Is it time to abandon globalisation? And can our economies ever return to 'normal'? Mark Blyth was interviewed by Anne McElvoy, senior editor at The Economist and head of Economist Radio.
