Mean Girl: Ayn Rand and the Culture of Greed

“In Mean Girl: Ayn Rand and the Culture of Greed, Lisa Duggan offers a new thesis on the infamous literary, cultural and political icon, Ayn Rand, exploring how the adoption of many of her philosophical and political ideas and beliefs helped fuel the insidious shift towards neoliberalism. Duggan’s skills as a cultural historian and her sharp-witted socio-political commentary fuse seamlessly together in this short yet fascinating book that is a necessary read for students of culture and politics, as well as activists and organisers, writes Ellen Reid.”

How Neoliberal Thinkers Spawned Monsters They Never Imagined

“Political theorist Wendy Brown’s latest book, In the Ruins of Neoliberalism: The Rise of Antidemocratic Politics in the West, traces the intellectual roots of neoliberalism and reveals how an anti-democratic project unleashed monsters – from plutocrats to neo-fascists – that its mid-20thcentury visionaries failed to anticipate. She joins the Institute for New Economic Thinking to discuss how the flawed blueprint for markets and the less-discussed focus on morality gave rise to threats to democracy and society that are distinct from what has come before.”

The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity

Far from representing rationality and logic, capitalism is modernity’s most beguiling and dangerous form of enchantment, argues Eugene McCarraher, associate professor of humanities and history at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. He recently published The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity (Harvard University Press, 2019).

Goodbye to All That: The End of Neoliberalism?

“What, precisely, do we mean when we discuss neoliberalism? Are we simply using a polite euphemism for ‘capitalism’ or do we refer to a distinctive social order altogether? Is neoliberalism an idea or a politics or a cultural phenomenon or some combination of all of these? Denniss [in his new book Dead Right: How Neoliberalism Ate Itself and What Comes Next] suggests ‘neoliberalism’ can be used, fairly straightforwardly, as ‘a catch-all term for all things small government’ and for a ‘blind faith in market forces’.”
