After Neoliberalism, The Kilburn Manifesto. 2013

“Although the neoliberal economic settlement is unravelling” they write, “its political underpinning remains largely unchallenged.”

Their manifesto “calls into question the neoliberal order itself, and argues that we need radical alternatives to its foundational assumptions”. Like many of an expanding global citizenry, or ‘multitude’ – we couldn’t agree more; but what will the initiative entail?

Their website explains that a new instalment of the manifesto will be published online every month, the first of which, Chapter 1 Framing statement , After neoliberalism: analysing the present is available to download here.

The second chapter, by Doreen Massey, Vocabularies of the Economy, is also now online here. Future instalments include:

– Michael Rustin Relational welfare (June)
– Stuart Hall and Alan O’Shea Neoliberal common sense (July)
– Beatrix Campbell Feminism and the new patriarchy (August)
– Ben Little Generational politics (September)
