Dent @ Home with Markos Moulitsas: The Political Landscape: What Now?

May 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT


Regardless of who wins the presidency in November, in the aftermath of COVID-19, the political landscape in the United States has changed forever.

US politics have transformed in ways we are only beginning to understand: from how people vote to what policies are enacted, from what the government does (and doesn’t do) to how it goes about it.

For 18 years, Denter Markos Moulitsas has been dedicated to analyzing and writing about politics in America, and to a non-trivial extent has even shaped the policies being debated.

In this Dent @ Home dialog, Markos will discuss the political direction he sees a post-pandemic America moving toward. He will focus on the real-world consequences of an extended lockdown, and what future policies voters will be demanding — along with what politicians can realistically deliver.

Topics include:

  • How long a lockdown can realistically last
  • How Covid-19 will affect the November election
  • What about China? How will trade be affected?
  • Is globalism over?
  • The populist backlash: Who is more at risk, the educated elite or the capitalist 1%?
  • Trust in government: will the pandemic ultimately boost or diminish voters confidence in the nation’s agencies and governance?
