Episode 2 – What Neoliberalism? – More Info

clivegabayDr Clive Gabay is lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary, University of London. He has just published the book Civil Society and Global Poverty.

If you want to learn more about neoliberalism there is a lot of excellent free writing out there. For example there’s a SUPER GOOD article by the Norwegian researcher Dag Einar Thorsen which I recommend very highly. And as ever, the Wikipedia page is awesome. David Harvey’s book A Brief History of Neoliberalism isn’t free, but it’s very cheap, especially second-hand, and it’s so good it’s worth it. I also recommend watching through pretty much any interview with Margaret Thatcher on Youtube (if you have the stomach for it) and spotting the neoliberal arguments in what she’s saying.

And also: how was this radio programme made? What made the maker uneasy? Sofa speaks to Emma Gradin in this mini-interview (video).
