    How we beat back the corporate takeover of America:

    1. Break up corporate monopolies

    2. Continue building union power

    3. End Citizens United and get big money out of politics

    Let’s keep working to unrig the system.

    Neoliberalism: A Critical Reader ed. by Alfredo Saad-Filho & Deborah Johnston

    Neoliberalism is the dominant ideology shaping our world today. It dictates the policies of governments, and shapes the actions of key institutions such as the WTO, IMF, World Bank and European Central Bank. Its political and economic implications can hardly be overstated.

    Neoliberal Hegemony: A Global Critique by Dieter Plehwe & Bernhard Walpen & Gisela Neunhöffer

    Neoliberalism is fast becoming the dominant ideology of our age, yet politicians, businessmen and academics rarely identify themselves with it and even political forces 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"?

    In the Ruins of Neoliberalism: The Rise of Antidemocratic Politics in the West by Wendy Brown

    Across the West, hard-right leaders are surging to power on platforms of ethno-economic nationalism, Christianity, and traditional family values. Is this phenomenon the end of neoliberalism or its monstrous offspring?

    Globalists: The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism by Quinn Slobodian

    In the first intellectual history of neoliberal globalism, Quinn Slobodian follows a group of thinkers from the ashes of the Habsburg Empire to the creation of the World Trade Organization to show that neoliberalism emerged less to shrink government and abolish regulations than to redeploy them at a global level.

    Evil Paradises: Dreamworlds of Neoliberalism edited by Mike Davis and Daniel Bertrand Monk, is a global guidebook to phantasmagoric but real places—alternate realities being constructed as “utopias” in a capitalist era unfettered by unions and state regulation. These developments—in cities, deserts, and in the middle of the sea—are worlds where consumption and inequality surpass our worst nightmares.

    Empire in the Age of Globalisation: US Hegemony and Neo-Liberal Disorder by Ray Kiely

    This book examines the relationship between US hegemony and contemporary globalisation. Kiely reveals the weaknesses of globalisation theory, and argues that we can only approach a proper understanding of the contemporary world order by linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism, neo-liberalism and universal human rights.

    Against the Terror of Neoliberalism: Politics Beyond the Age of Greed

    With its dream worlds of power, commercialization, and profit making, neoliberalism has ushered in new Gilded Age in which the logic of the market now governs every aspect of media, culture, and social life-from schooling to health care to old age.

    A Brief History of Neoliberalism

    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.

    He portrays history of neoliberalism in a period where neoliberal transformation has completed, not begun. State powers have already been transferred to capital's institutions and away from governments. Puppets portray it as a choice in politics

    My first sole-authored book just came out! Visions of a Digital Nation: Market and Monopoly in British Telecommunications is about the privatisation and digitalisation of the UK's telecom infrastructure, and why that was such a pivotal moment for the rise of neoliberalism.

    So billionaires own US$3 trillion more than they did three years ago, their wealth has grown at three times the rate of inflation.
    While five billion other people can’t afford what they could three years ago.

    Half thinking of starting an hashtag here, about the dire, dire state of UK (global?) higher education. Sharing nuggets of senior management decisions, neoliberal language, and overall slow collapse.

    Won’t work of course because most of us can’t risk honesty, but honestly: the everyday reality of what is happening deserves recording in all its depressing and damning detail.

    The Triumph of Broken Promises

    A powerful case that the economic shocks of the 1970s hastened both the end of the Cold War and the rise of neoliberalism by forcing governments to impose austerity on their own people.
    Why did the Cold War come to a peaceful end? And why did neoliberal economics sweep across the world in the late twentieth century?
