Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts

Front Cover
Routledge, May 20, 2016 - Political Science - 254 pages

Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts provides a critical guide to a vocabulary that has become globally dominant over the past forty years. The language of neoliberalism both constructs and expresses a particular vision of economics, politics, and everyday life. Some find this vision to be appealing, but many others find the contents and implications of neoliberalism to be alarming. Despite the popularity of these concepts, they often remain confusing, the product of contested histories, meanings, and practices. In an accessible way, this interdisciplinary resource explores and dissects key terms such as:

  • Capitalism
  • Choice
  • Competition
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Flexibility
  • Freedom
  • Governance
  • Market
  • Reform
  • Stakeholder
  • State

Complete with an introductory essay, cross-referencing, and an extensive bibliography, this book provides a unique and insightful introduction to the study of neoliberalism in all its forms and disguises.
