The growth of neo-liberalism has been the dominant political force in the past two decades. This volume concentrates on understanding the political economy of neo-liberalism. It focuses on a number of the most critical issues and examines the essence of neo-liberalism, namely, the dominance of the market.

In particular, the authors consider:

• the political economy of market expansion
• the rise of neo-liberalism in advanced capitalist economies
• the notion of social capital
• the nature of economic imperialism
• the political economy of central bank independence
• the relationship between Keynes and Marx.

With contributions by some of the leading scholars in the field, this vital new book on the political economy of neo-liberalism and the dominance of the market will become essential reading for all those with an interest in post Keynesian economics, political economy and international economic policy.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is a stimulating collection of essays, which will inform and provoke both friend and foe of neo-liberalism alike. A recurrent, though not all-encompassing, theme in the book concerns the issue of the relationship between social structure and human agency.’
– P.A. Lewis, Economics & Philosophy
