Encirclement - Neoliberalism Ensnares Democracy


( chapter links below in info! )

Neo-liberalism's one-size-fits-all dogmas are well known: deregulation, reducing the role of the State, privatization, limiting inflation rather than unemployment, etc. In other words, depoliticizing the economy and putting it into the hands of the financial class.

And these dogmas are gradually settling into our consciousness because they're being broadcast across a vast and pervasive network of propaganda. [...] But behind the ideological smokescreen, behind the neat concepts of natural order and the harmony of interests in a free market, beyond the panacea of the "invisible hand," what is really going on?
