Neoliberal Hegemony
A Global Critique
Neoliberalism is fast becoming the dominant ideology of our age, yet politicians,businessmen and academics rarely identify themselves with it, and even politicalforces critical of it continue to carry out neoliberal policies around the globe.How can we make sense of this paradox? Who actually are ‘the neoliberals’?This book provides a comprehensive account of the creation and reproduc-tion of the current neoliberal hegemony; focusing on both the strategies for andopposition to the production and distribution of neoliberal ideas in a diverserange of contexts. The authors survey the global network of think tanks, policyinstitutes, corporate planning groups, intellectuals, political and corporate leaderswhich have underpinned the ideological and political dominance of neoliberalism,and consequently, neoliberal forms of globalization. This volume also analysesthe following:
Specific neoliberal projects, regional contexts and structures of knowledge.
The effects of neoliberalism on international institutions – from the WorldBank to the UN.
The growing corporate and political connections.
The impact of neoliberalism on popular culture, education and other ideol-ogies.
The various forms of opposition to neoliberalism.Broadening our collective understanding of neoliberalism, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of international political economy andglobalization.
