On the unexpected origins of neoliberalism. Auhebunga Bunga talks to Quinn Slobodian, author of Globalists, about how neo-liberals look back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the League of Nations. Why does neoliberalism talk about freedom, but promote order? Is neoliberalism about more or less state – or is it about what kind of state?
Plus why the genuine neo-liberals didn’t care about the Cold War and how Murray Rothbard laid the ground for Trump.
Quinn will be in Berlin holding a talk on 13 June: “Neoliberal Globalism and the Backlash from Within”
7pm, Kopenhagener Straße 9, 10437 Berlin (U- and S-Bahn stations Schönhauser Allee)
