On Tax Day 2017, a panel of Baffler contributors will discuss various issues of concern in the Trump era. Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, will explain how the phony policy dictates of austerity economics have demolished the foundations of middle-class prosperity. Contributing editor Barbara Ehrenreich will revisit the dismaying delusions—right, left, and in between—that have made a Trump presidency possible. Online columnist Hussein Ibish will survey the challenges ahead in the Muslim-American community. And Baffler writer Rafia Zakaria will explore the many derangements of white ethno-nationalism in the Bannon age.
