16. W July 7 [panel Neoliberalism: introduction and critiques
S. R. Waldman (2020) “Four functions of markets” Interfluidity 1 May 2020
David Harvey 2007. “Neoliberalism as Creative Destruction.” The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, 610(1): 22-44.
Mike Konczal et al (2020) “The empirical failures of neoliberalism” Roosevelt Institute
Note: Waldman’s piece is a blog post, not a scholarly paper, but it does a good job of setting out some features of markets that are salient to neoliberalism and/or critics of neoliberalism. It therefore provides useful background to the readings in this unit as well as units 17-20. Harvey is a Marxist scholar and a well-known critic of neoliberalism; some of his arguments about the practical consequences of neoliberal reforms are updated and expanded on by Konczal.
Please answer or have some unformal comments/paragraphs (you can say I understood that.. I think that.. I did not understand this specific thing in the reading etc. ) regarding each of the 3 following questions.
question #1: How might defenders of neoliberalism respond to Harvey and Konczal? Are there gaps in their arguments?
Your answer #1:
question #2: What points did you find especially interesting or especially difficult, unclear or confusing, in any of the Unit 16 readings?
Your answer #2:
question #3: Based on the assigned readings, compare and contrast (a) the theoretical arguments for neoliberalism; (b) the rhetorical appeal of arguments for neoliberalism directed at the general public; (c) what Harvey takes to be the real political objective of neoliberalism (as opposed to its “utopian” theoretical objective)? In what sense is this “real” objective “redistributive rather than generative”?
Your answer #3:

You are required to formulate and defend a thesis regarding Nagel’s account, or extend/develop the orginal thesis

there are 2 parts of the same assignment, part 1 is due on the 11th of july, and part 2 is due on the 17th of july. part 1 is discussion forum comments where it can be unformal. but part 2 is a formal assignment were you have to answer the questions based on the 5 readings that are provided ONLY and give a detailed answer with correct information that is direct from the reading. for more details please look at the google docs.
I assigned 4 pages single, I would say 1-1.5 page for part 1, and the rest is for part 2, part 2 worth 20% so the focus should be on it.
