I am a unionist and a believer in Roosevelt’s New Deal, and Democrat. Anyone writing less than 4-5 stars is a ‘milk’ the labor class Republican or playing the Devil's Advocate seeking disagreement. Harvey is a leader to listen to. I truly think he cares for the common world citizen. Telling the truth is a tough job, feels better and feeds more people to a healthy environment, in the long run. Like Gore's movie and the Florida 2000 election, John Kerry's tax plan for health care presented on TV...a 2004 Ted Koppel debate where Kerry states: Geo. B., J. Kerry, and Ted Koppel will fund my idea of tax plan paying for national health care, a great stimulus for American Labor. Had we listened, Kerry delivered; we would have had a labor and market stimulus using taxation. Instead like 2000 Florida, We vote to go to an Oil War! (For Gore, the third party helped this to come about, in my opinion. Bush used Ralph Nader.) This is what Harvey is trying to have us see, what is being done to the economics of America. The wealthy cannot motivate without feeling the labor class is stupid selling their labor production for the wealthy to be wealthier. There is nothing wrong with making money, just that if you give someone one thing and allow them to rule and receive two things tomorrow, they will want three, then 4.... Today taxation is lower than 60 years +. Redistribution of wealth is capitalism. ChangeItOrDrownIt TY Harvey!

Great introductory book.
But... why is a book problematizing neoliberalism not available free online? The enforcement of copy rights is a clear facet of neoliberal ideology. This book has no doubt
sold a great deal and, nonetheless, money appears useless after reading this book. Unfortunate indeed.

This book is at its best when it's delivering on exactly what its title promises - a cursory recapitulation of the development and implementation of the neoliberal agenda. Of particular value is the ... Read full review
