Anatole Kaletsky — Trumping Capitalism?

Anatole Kaletsky summarizes some of the key analysis of where we are and likely outcomes of projected Trump policies.

Unfortunately, neither MMT, Post Keynesian, Institutionalist, Marxian or other heterodox views are included.

If the world is indeed at the point of an interregnum between forms of capitalism owing to the failure of the status quo version widely known as neoliberalism, would it not be logical to speculate that views other than  those held in the mainstream might hold relevant answers, especially in light of the impact of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn's campaigns, the rise of both left and right parties in Europe, and the success of Chinese market socialism as the CCP incorporates capitalism into its Marxian system.

This would suggest that Anglo-American leadership is waning and the dominant worldview is shifting away from neoliberalism post-crisis.
