Between 2000 and 2010, at least three types of anger have grown around the world:
- Against banks : the major global banks announce annual profits of several billion dollars obtained on the backs of small investors (economic anger);
- Young people who are worried about the legacy prepare their elders (generational anger);
- Many people want to be heard when discussions concern issues that are pertinent to them, while the political elite is resistant to any form of dialogue (political anger).
The standoff that has ensued between the elites and civil society currently prevents finding or developing the consensus needed to deal with these crises.
In addition, the currently-proposed solutions are slow.
The more time passes, the more the costs and risks are growing.
