A Brief History of Neoliberalism

by

Show Synopsis

Neoliberalism-the doctrine that market exchange is an ethic in itself, capable of acting as a guide for all human action-has become dominant in both thought and practice throughout much of the world since 1970 or so. Writing for a wide audience, David Harvey, author of The New Imperialism and The Condition of Postmodernity, here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage.

Exploitative capitalism

The author gives an explanation of what could best be described as "neoliberal" ecopolinomics (Political economics? Economic politics?) and its history. Not difficult to read for a well-read person. This book exposes the root causes of the world wide capitalistic failures, especially the current financial one. It is not anti-capitalist; it just shows how the dominance of world affairs by relatively few powerful capitalists has been to the detriment of this planet and its life forms. Humans are no different from other creatures in their quest to survive, even at the expense of their fellow creatures.

I give it 1 star short of 5 stars because it is not entirely suitable for general public reading. Get your dictionary out for unusual words on about every 3rd page.

The International Simultaneous Policy Organisation (ISPO at Simpol.org) provides a profound worldwide solution to worldwide exploitative capitalism.
