Product description

Review

Praise for The Limits of Neoliberalism: "Brilliant - explains how the rhetoric of competition has invaded almost every domain of our existence." Evgeny Morozov, author of To Save Everything, Click Here In a heady mixture of psychology, economics, sociology, and philosophy, this book reveals the misguided nature of the currently popular intellectual project to make people happier and improve society through 'scientific' understanding - and manipulation - of human beings. With many governments and corporations hell-bent on control promoting it aggressively, this project is increasingly depriving our societies of true social bonds, democratic participation, critical thinking, and even happiness itself. An eye-opening, head-spinning, and mind-expanding book. --Ha-Joon Chang, University of Cambridge, author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism
