We have never been neoliberal

Had a short piece called "We have never been neoliberal" published today on the website New Left Project:

"This has been written as a response to Jason Hickel's recent article for NLP on neoliberalism. While I have sympathy with Hickel’s arguments (and have actually made similar ones in the past myself), I want to take issue with a specific part of these arguments, namely how he has characterized monetarism.  I do this in order to point out that it is too simplistic to classify the transformation of Anglo-Saxon political economies over the last few decades as the exemplar of neoliberalism. In fact, we could even argue that they are not neoliberal after all........."
