Excerpt: /201/ Reading Club: The New Class War

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-anxvz-107bd31

We discuss Michael Lind’s The New Class War.

Lind identifies new lines in the class war, between working class and managerial overclass, between those in the “heartlands” and those in the “hubs”. How convincing is this account? What is his critique of technocratic managerialism and its symptom, populism? How convincing – and realistic – is his solution of “democratic pluralism”? And is this only achievable as a result of a new cold war with China?
