The elite gradually unpicked this arrangement, preferring a different one, where the market was king. It would be a world of low taxes, financialization, the market's encroachment into all aspects of society, a militarized, oppressive state that enforces a "beneficial market environment", and worker insecurity. In return, there would be a "freedom to choose" for every sovereign individual -yet in neoliberalism, the choices are rendered meaningless - like the difference between one generation of iPhone and the next.
The West would become a "liberal" paradise where every institution other than the state, including the union, church and the family, would be broken down to create "market-friendly conditions" everywhere - ultimately resulting in the demolition of communities and society itself.
It was a devil's bargain, and so it has proved to be. The neoliberals have sawn off the branch they were sitting on and turned the citizenry into isolated, atomised, deracinated individuals, powerless and incapable of effecting change.
This book is an eye opener, and gives you all the information you need to understand the world.
It gives you an insight of the basics of neo-liberalism and how the world functions.
Clear, succinct and brilliantly argued with lots of evidence.
And must I say, a very well written book.
