Abstract

In The Pound and the Fury: Why Anger and Confusion Reign in an Economy Paralysed by Myth, Jack Mosse explores everyday understandings and myths surrounding the workings of ‘the economy’ in the UK, showing how it is not a fixed and definable object but a malleable social sign that means different things in different contexts. This fascinating study offers a snapshot of the lived experience of late capitalism, shining particularly when it suggests the need to begin talking and listening to one another, writes Jessica Eastland-Underwood. The Pound and the Fury: Why Anger and Confusion Reign in an Economy Paralysed by Myth. Jack Mosse. Manchester University Press. 2021.
