11th Wheelwright Lecture | The Crisis of Neoliberalism and the Rising Tide of Authoritarianism

30 August 2018

 

11th Annual E.L. Wheelwright Memorial Lecture

Hosted by the Department of Political Economy

 

Speaker: Alfredo Saad-Filho (School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London)

Global neoliberalism is in crisis: the deepest economic collapse since the Great Depression has been followed by a ‘Great Stagnation’ with no end in sight. At the same time, democracies around the world are succumbing to a wave of authoritarianism without precedent in the postwar era. This lecture reviews the causes, severity and implications of the twin crises of neoliberalism, examines the prospects for the end of neoliberalism, and suggests strategies to support democracy and progressive economic policies.


Reception starts at 5:15 pm. Please RSVP here by 26 August 2018 for catering purposes.
