Our next session will take place on Wednesday, February 28th at 19:00 at our usual lovely Bilgisaray (Oranienstraße 194).
This month we ask: what is Neoliberalism?
The term neoliberalism is everywhere. Still, it can be hard to pin down. Some people use it so broadly it seems to lose meaning, while others (conservatives and liberals alike) insist that it doesn’t really exist or act like it was invented yesterday. Where does the term come from and what do we really mean when we say neoliberalism? How is different than plain old capitalism?
To guide our discussion the following should be read in advance:
- Unmaking Global Capitalism By Sam Gindin
- How feminism became capitalism’s handmaiden – and how to reclaim it By Nancy Fraser
- Under Neoliberalism, You Can Be Your Own Tyrannical Boss By Meagan Day
