Where Are Anti-neoliberals?

A really interesting question is why there is no strongly anti-neoliberal candidate on either side. We saw 16 Republican candidates 3 years ago and are now seeing, what? two dozen? Dem candidates. And not a single one can articulate a consistently anti-neoliberal position.

There’s clearly an enormous hunger for it. Trump won because he went in that direction (and then was completely neutered by his inner circle and betrayed his voters). People clearly want it. Not all people, of course, and not the people who have any cultural or economic capital. But still it’s an enormously popular position. But nobody is in any hurry to take it.
