The Emperor’s New Clothes: Biden’s Challenges after Trump

September 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Biden’s reform promises are vacillating, reflecting the volatile balance of forces within the political and economic elites, and the strength of the right-wing populist camp.

What are the priorities of the US government and the US ruling class, in ensuring that the “return to normal” strengthens the basic pillars of neoliberal and imperial policies?

What are the strong and the weak points of the Biden administration?

How are the reactionary forces regrouping, under the Republican party and with the various militant civil groupings promoting a race war?

What are the intentions and ambitions of the Biden administration to re-establish themselves as the hegemon?

What is happening with the progressive sector including the left-wing of the Democratic Party and social movements like BLM?


  • Phyllis Bennis (Institute for Policy Studies, Washington)
  • Ashley Smith (Spectre)
