Helen Thompson joins me to discuss the role of ideology in Brexit.  How has this crisis been driven by structures, chance, and people’s commitment to ideals? What has been the role of emotion, and what will win in the end, dogmatism or compromise? 

 

Helen Thompson is Professor of Political Economy. She has been at Cambridge since 1994 and is at present Deputy Head of the School of the Humanities and Social Sciences. She is a regular panelist on Talking Politics. 

 

Helen’s present work is focused on the historical origins of the post-2008 economic and political world and the crises it is generating for western countries. More particularly her recent work covers the political economy of oil, Brexit and the euro zone crisis.
