Living The Dream during Trump’s Trade War

April 14, 2018

In this episode of Living The Dream Dave (@withsobersenses) tries to start an analysis of the Trump administration’s trade and tariff policy. Why has the Australian Left been so paralysed over this question? What sense can we make of it? How do we understand the policies of the state in the broader dynamics of world capitalism?

 Stuff mentioned includes:

 U.S. Admits That Politics Was Behind Steel Tariffs(not a Brazilian paper but a US paper reporting on US representatives talking to Brazilian business leaders)

 Midnight Notes Collective – Introduction to The New Enclosures

 II Rubin – A History of Economic Thought
