A few weeks ago one of our readers, Tony Ransley, asked, ” just for the sake of clarity can someone define what a Neo-Liberal is and how they differ from a Liberal ?” In a belated response we’ve set up a new page, where we will post a diversity of articles on neo-liberalism in the coming months. If you hover over Background Reading on the top banner a drop-down menu will appear, click on Thinking about Neo-Liberalism,
Responding directly to Tony’s question you will find Liberalism in Neo-Liberal times – dimensions, contradictions, limits by Gholam Khiabany

Clearly we are no lovers of the neo-liberal creed, which extols the marketisation of life and the privatisation of self. Thus the articles chosen will reflect a range of critical and oppositional stances. To access an excess of neo-liberal propaganda simply switch on mainstream television or peruse any daily newspaper.
