the rise of the Alt-Right can be best understood as a reaction against the technocracy of Neoliberalism that promotes cross border trade, market fundamentalism, austerity, global institutions etc.
So how is it that Donald Trump who is a devout enemy of the neoliberal elitism of Bush, Clinton, Obama etc. an employer of Arthur Laffer ? When Laffer was a Reagan advisor and an architect of the neoliberal Global World Order that Trump opposes ? How is it the populists oppose the globalism aspect but love the domestic policies of lower taxes on corporations, un progressive taxation etc.
