August 29, 2018

Today, writer Quinn Slobodian joins us to discuss his new book, ‘Globalists: The End Of Empire & the Birth of Neoliberalism.’ With Sam, he discusses Neoliberalism as a discrete political movement for technocratic protection of capitalism. The similarities and differences between Neoliberals and Keynesians. How decolonization was seen as a threat to capitalism. How Neoliberalism uses democracy while fundamentally distrusting it.

FOR MEMBERS: Another throwback to Air America days, Sam and Janeane talk to the late writer and historian Tony Judt on Abu Ghraib, governmental lying, the media during wartime, Israel/Palestine and much more. Recorded 6/2/2004.
