After neoliberalism: analysing the present
Abstract:Examines the nature of the global neoliberal settlement, including the social, cultural and political battles that have attended its emergence and maintenance - and those that might help bring about its demise. Drawing on Gramscian concepts such as conjuncture and hegemony, it argues that the economic underpinnings of the current settlement are unravelling, but the broader political and social consensus is still largely in place. Therefore it seeks to challenges mainstream political debate, which largely avoids confronting the systemic failures that underpin the financial crash.
