The op-ed that The Guardian would have published had Trump won: Compare and contrast

Hoping for a return to normal after Trump? That’s the last thing we need – The GUARDIAN

Anjan Basu reviews ANOTHER NOW for The Wire

What would a post-capitalist society look like, if it was to avoid replicating the failed Soviet model? In which, important ways, will its economic and social institutions be dissimilar to modern capitalism’s? Will the market have a place in that society’s scheme of things?

Politics in a time of pandemic are grim.
