Trump and Brexit: What do they owe to economists?

The reasons for the Trump phenomenon and Brexit vote are many and various, but have we overlooked ways in which standard economics, by failing to take seriously the radical uncertainty endemic in modern political economies, has contributed to the populist turn?

More importantly, by assuming that people form rational expectations, they encouraged us to ignore the transformative power of simple narratives.
