Donald Trump’s first weeks in office have seen the birth of what might become a mass opposition movement. Yet some continue to see his ostensible rejection of aspects of neoliberalism as offering a way forward for workers in the United States. Michael Roberts, author of The Long Depression, shows “Trumponomics” for what it is: a barely coherent attempt to boost the profitability of capital at the expense of the working class, and an economic program more likely to trigger a new slump than end the current one.
On January 20, 2017, over 1,000 people joined Haymarket Books, Jacobin, and Verso Books in Washington, D.C. for "The Anti-Inauguration."
With powerful speeches from Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Naomi Klein, Jeremy Scahill, Anand Gopal, and Owen Jones, the event was a counterpoint to Donald Trump's (poorly attended) inauguration. It also served as a counter-inauguration for the resistance we need in the era of Trump — and a reminder of the kind of future worth fighting for.
