"The age of neo-liberalism is still with us despite everything.... no major figure of the neo-liberal cause, anywhere in the world, has recanted or acknowledged the disastrous consequences of their failed revolution.

The citadels of power, status and wealth across the globe still hum to the dynamics, logics and cliches of neo-liberalism despite the devastation they have wrought both recently, and across the whole of the last thirty years"
Gerry Hassan, The Future of the Left and neo-liberalism's failed appeal as a liberation movement
