Leestip: wat is neoliberalisme?

Rechts houdt ervan om te doen alsof neoliberalisme een vaag, ongedefinieerd begrip is dat vooral als scheldwoord gebruikt wordt. Wie echt wil weten wat neoliberalisme is, moet dit stuk van George Monbiot lezen. Vooral deze paragraaf is raak:

“Neoliberalism’s triumph also reflects the failure of the left. When laissez-faire economics led to catastrophe in 1929, Keynes devised a comprehensive economic theory to replace it. When Keynesian demand management hit the buffers in the 70s, there was an alternative ready. But when neoliberalism fell apart in 2008 there was … nothing. This is why the zombie walks. The left and centre have produced no new general framework of economic thought for 80 years.”
