La política económica de Obama/Trump

This article originally appeared at Counterpunch.org.  The Spanish version can be found at sinpermiso.info

El capitalismo estadounidense vuelve a precipitarse a un callejón sin salida. Ya se había estrellado en la Gran Depresión, desde 1929 hasta 1933, antes de sacudirse con el New Deal. Después de 1945 se concentró en hacer retroceder el New Deal hasta convertirse bruscamente al neoliberalismo y al "globalismo" en la década de 1970. Esto proporcionó la reconfortante ilusión de unas décadas de "próspera normalidad". Cuando en 2008 ocurrió el segundo gran derrumbe en 75 años se puso de manifiesto la realidad deudo-dependiente de esas décadas. Que además llevó al capitalismo a una nueva depresión seguida por un devastador régimen de austeridad. El derrumbe económico provocó el político: su centro sistémico no pudo sostenerse.
