Could the various populist ballot-box successes of recent years be seen as the revenge of 'left-behind' places against the status quo? And are they driven more by territorial factors than social or demographic ones? These are the arguments made by Andrés Rodríguez-Pose, Professor of Economic Geography at the London School of Economics, as set out in his recent paper: 'The revenge of the places that don't matter (and what to do about it)'.

In this episode of City Talks, Professor Rodríguez-Pose joins Andrew Carter to unpack his theory and explore how place-sensitive policies and interventions could be used to develop the potential of the 'places that don't matter'.
