Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

What does Trump mean for the neoliberal order?


There's this broader sense of delegitimization, and people are losing their faith in the political center, the political mainstream - the political process. And so it creates this kind of vacancy that he can step into and mash together these ideas that are swirling out there, and present them as a solution that people find appealing.

Jacobin managing editor Nicole Aschoff discusses President Trump's election as harbinger of neoliberalism's decline - as the public rejects the architecture of global trade and the institutions created to advance it, and the political center's hollow nature is exposed via crisis after crisis - and calls for a new left response to capitalism's new Trumpy direction, beyond defensive progressivism.

Nicole wrote the article The Glory Days are Over for Jacobin.
