Welcome (Bienvenue) to Relentless Political Economy

With the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, along side a thorough rout of the Democrats in the House of Representatives, it seems timely to start a blog about whats wrong with the institutionalized left.  Residually some pokes will be taken at the putative right, but the focus here is on the failings of the left: their inability to defend anything resembling social democracy over the last 40 years; the preference of style over substance, of political correctness over political prescience, and it must be said, of identity over class.
