Neoliberalism is a term used by scholars and critics primarily in reference to the 20th century resurgence of 19th century ideas associated with laissez-faire economic liberalism.

Quotes[edit]

  • Neoliberalism, despite the claim by its adherents that it was simply an economic theory, was from its beginnings a class project articulated on behalf of the interests of capital.
  • In short, “neoliberalism” is not simply a name for pro-market policies, or for the compromises with finance capitalism made by failing social democratic parties. It is a name for a premise that, quietly, has come to regulate all we practise and believe: that competition is the only legitimate organising principle for human activity.
