55. Desolation does Theory: Introduction to Neoliberalism

Listen up Maniacs! This week we discuss Neoliberalism. We talk about the historic roots of the concept, the warped philosophy which underpins it, and how it was realised in practice through Thatcherism & Reaganism. We discuss Key texts by David Harvey, and Andrew Gamble, and in the second part of the podcast we discuss our boy Mark Fisher and show how Neoliberalism isn’t just an economic policy but a set of social relations which impacts our everyday lives. Neoliberalism is something that lives within each of us. Finally, as ever, we look at what all this means for wales and conclude that wales is a deeply Neoliberal state. Enjoy!
