The Collapse of the American Empire? Reply

Some pretty good economic analysis from Chris Hedges from 2018. Much of what he describes will be amped up on a mega-level following the present Great Depression Two. Hedges is a lot like Chomsky in the sense of offering a lot of succinct and astute analysis combined with left-bias and sanctimony (not that there are not plenty of parallels on the right). Guys like Hedges and Chomsky are to the Left what Tucker Carlson and Pat Buchanan are to the Right.

The Agenda welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, who over the past decade and a half has made his name as a columnist, activist and author. He’s been a vociferous public critic of presidents on both sides of the American political spectrum, and his latest book, ‘America, the Farewell Tour,’ is nothing short of a full-throated throttling of the political, social, and cultural state of his country.
