Produktbeschreibung
The financial crisis seemed to present a fundamental challenge toneo liberalism, the body of ideas that have constituted thepolitical orthodoxy of most advanced economies in recent decades.Colin Crouch argues in this book that it will shrug off thischallenge. The reason is that while neo liberalism seems to beabout free markets, in practice it is concerned with the dominanceover public life of the giant corporation. This has beenintensified, not checked, by the recent financial crisis andacceptance that certain financial corporations are 'too bigto fail'. Although much political debate remains preoccupied withconflicts between the market and the state, the impact of thecorporation on both these is today far more important. Several factors have brought us to this situation: * The lobbying power of firms whose donations are of growingimportance to cash-hungry politicians and parties * The weakening of competitive forces by firms large enough toshape and dominate their markets * The moral initiative that is grasped by enterprises that devisetheir own agendas of corporate social responsibility Both democratic politics and the free market are weakened bythese processes, but they are largely inevitable and not alwaysmalign. Hope for the future, therefore, cannot lie in suppressingthem in order to attain either an economy of pure markets or asocialist society. Rather it lies in dragging the giant corporationfully into political controversy.

Rezensionen
"A highly approachable and illuminating argument in political economy ... The story is packed with thought-provoking reframings: financial irresponsibility is now a 'collective good'; and 'the idea of a "job"' now seems very weird to me indeed."
The Guardian

"This highly accessible book makes its case persuasively."
Times Higher Education

"a valuable book that not only gives a very good overview of neo-liberalism and its failings, but also points to government errors and serves as a good primer in such things as imperfect information in markets."
Irish Journal of Sociology

"A rich and powerful book. It pushes towards an analysis of neoliberalism not as the set of liberalizing forces that it depicts itself as being, but rather as a grouping of impulses that have both hampered government and weakened market competition."
Crooked Timber

"An excellent contribution to the study of political economy that directly resolves the puzzle it has identified."
Transfer: European Review of Labour and Research
"A well-reasoned and tightly argued analysis of our present predicament. Although written for the intelligent general reader, rather than subject specialists, his insights constantly provoke and illuminate. Far from being merely a dry dissection of neoliberal theory, the book also addresses how to make corporations behave better."
LSE Politics Blog

"Takes forward and moves beyond Karl Polanyi's (1957) analysis of state/market relationsto match the changing conditions of the twenty-first century."
Journal of Contemporary European Studies
"The most important work on the political economy of modern capitalism since Keynes, Kalecki and Schonfield."
Philippe C. Schmitter, European University Institute

"Colin Crouch shows how neoliberalism as embodied in large corporations brought about the Great Recession of 2007 and yet, ironically, they profited in wealth and power from it - at everyone else's expense. A compelling read."
Michael Mann, University of California, Los Angeles

"An excellent contribution to the debate about neoliberalism. Crouch gives us a tightly reasoned and well balanced critique of the neoliberal philosophy that contributed significantly to the 2008 financial crisis. And his call for a more frank discussion in civil society of the moral and ethical assumptions behind neoliberalism is a refreshing addition to the traditional call for simply bringing the state back in to tame market forces."
John L. Campbell, Dartmouth College
