Description

In recent months, there has emerged a narrative that has sought to frame Joe Biden’s presidency as a revival of FDR New Dealism. To what extent is this narrative realistic? Is Joe Biden really a deviation from the neoliberal economic order that has defined the “50 year counterrevolution”? Or is such talk merely a DC beltway branding exercise?
