Confronted with a similar set of failures in the 1930s, the US opted for an
AMerican version of "social democracy" via the New Deal --- which was
transformed into military Keynesianism in the wake of World War II.   What
forced the ruling class to opt for a [limited] "capital-labor accord" and a
pale version of European social democracy was the existence of an
alternative on the left --- the Soviet planned economy.

With that alternative discredited and gone, the only model alternative to
the failed US "mixed economy" is some form of authoritarianism ---

Will the ruling class make their piece with "strong man rule" --- if not
with Trump than with a better salesman of "Trumpism"??

the next two elections may tell that tale ....
