Neoliberalism is a term often used, yet rarely in the same way twice. We are very excited to welcome Neil Davidson and Anwar Shaikh to a discussion that can help establish just what we mean when we say “neoliberalism”.
Our speakers will help untangle the complicated, and often contradictory, meanings of neoliberalism.
Aspects covered will include:
Neoliberalism as a period in the history of capitalism;
The long-term effects of capitalist globalization;
The short-term impact of capitalist crisis;
And social neoliberalism as a regime of consolidation.
Readings to prepare
