Description

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. Writing for a wide audience, David Harvey, author of The New Imperialism and The Condition of Postmodernity, here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage. Through critical engagement with this history, he constructs a framework, not only for analyzing the political and economic dangers that now surround us, but also for assessing the prospects for the more socially just alternatives being advocated by many oppositional movements.

thumbs up

highly recommended, extremely eye opening and well written, accessible, comprehensive, very scary, must-read primer on dangers of free market capitalism and insidious methods by which economic elite have manipulated world markets to their own advantage

Monotone reader

This is a great book if you're interested in a western history of the rise of Neoliberalism or if you need to read it for school like I do. However this reader is terrible! Half way through every sentence he raises his pitch and ends every sentence on a low note. It was extremely annoying

Out of date

Professor Harvey needs to update this book. It is out of date and factually wrong about China.

Absolutely wonderful primer

David Harvey's Brief History of Neo-Liberalism rings more frighteningly true in 2018 than it did back when it was published in the previous decade. must listen/read for anyone seeking to understand the ideology which currently runs our modern world.

So happy this is available as an audiobook!

The book as a whole is quite convincing, and therefore depressing. After listening, I feel I have a much better grasp of neoliebralism, even if it's more of a powerless grasp.

A book everyone should listen to/read.

If you have people in your life that you care about, if you have any stake in the future of humanity, the dynamics, knowledge and realities revealed in this book must be considered in our search for solutions to saving ourselves from the imminent destruction of our world by Neoliberalism.

An alternate, but blinders-on history

Good to have an alternate view to the mainstream economic views since the 1970s.

But the author explains the rightward shift of republicans after 1970 purely as co-option by capital. Doesn’t even mention the civil rights act causing Democrats to lose the Dixiecrats. Ie the author doesn’t even mention an arguably larger cause than the monocausal line he just repeats over and over.

This blinders-on take on history is actively harmful to you understanding of history’s multi-causal reality.

Superb book

Short but dense. Reader was coherent. Does a great job of explaining a very mystified and complicated subject. Recommend 100%.

essential reading

this book is essential reading for anyone who loves politics or economics and wants to understand the rising of neoliberalism throughout the 20th and 21 century. this book offers a thorough, well researched critic of the neoliberal ideology and application throughout the world. my only complaint was that the book can go through dense information rather quickly at times

Essential introduction to neoliberalism

This is truly an essential reading if one is to fully appreciate how class, industry, and capital coalesced into neoliberalism; and the concomitant and compounding influence it has had on domestic and global markets and human potentiality. Very comprehensive overview.

Also, I found the narrator to be perfectly tolerable. Worth the investment, for sure.

Great Breakdown of Contemporary Economics

David Harvey does a great job of revealing the contradictions and hypocrisies instrinsic of neoliberalism/neoconservatism. Not only does he paint a detailed picture of how these systems work, but provides historical context about why these systems are unsustainable for humanitarian progression. A lot of Marx inspired authors will limit themselves to dogma, however, Harvey goes beyond what Marx envisioned long ago, transforming some of his tenants into viable contemporary criticism.
