Beyond Bidenomics

Beyond Bidenomics

A preview of our next issue.

Cover art by Tabitha Arnold

Our Winter 2022 issue, out January 10, features a special section on the political economy and policy landscape of the Biden era guest-edited by Mike Konczal. “The work of the left at this moment is to try to understand what new spaces have opened up, despite the serious obstacles, and how to build upon them,” Konczal writes in his introduction. “This Dissent section gathers writers trying to make sense of this moment on those terms. Each author tackles a different political sphere, yet they all address the same fundamental question: Does the Biden administration represent new political energies that offer an alternative to neoliberalism? Or are current reform efforts set to fail, burn out, or be absorbed in the old political regime?”
