Neoliberalisms war against democracy and how to resist it.
How do we explain the strange survival of the forces responsible for the 2008 economic crisis, the worst since 1929? How do we explain the fact that neoliberalism has emerged from the crisis strengthened? When the system broke, a number of the most prominent economists hastened to announce the death of neoliberalism. They regarded the pursuit of neoliberal policy as the fruit of dogmatism.
For Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval, neoliberalism is no mere dogma. Supported by powerful oligarchies, it is a veritable politico-institutional system that obeys a logic of self-reinforcement. Far from representing a break, crisis has become a formidably effective mode of government.
