On what neoliberalism is

Standard

“ The philosophy was called neoliberalism. It saw competition as the defining characteristic of human relations. The market would discover a natural hierarchy of winners and losers, creating a more efficient system that would ever be devised through planning or by design. Anything that impeded this process, such as significant tax, regulation, trade union activity or state provision, was counter-productive. Unrestricted entrepreneurs would create the wealth that would trickle down ”

George Monbiot, ‘Neoliberalism: the deep story that lies beneath Donald Trump’s triumph’, The Guardian
