Must register no later than Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in September 2008, it had appeared for a brief moment when the last hour of neoliberalism have beaten: When was the mantra of the market and privatization since the seventies on everyone's lips, which should now governments intervene to save systemically important banks. The competence of business leaders was a major question mark. Today, only three years later, the managers get huge bonuses again. To fund the bailout benefits will be reduced. The logic of the radical competition and the entrepreneurial self is still subject to our mentality. How is this possible? This question is Colin Crouch in his great new essay. The author of the acclaimed bestseller Post Democracy traces the intellectual history of liberalism and stressed that the conflict vs. State. Market falls short: It's the giant transnational corporations, in which democracy and the market model suffer. But we can defend ourselves, as we reflect on our values and our power as consumers. This is Crouch's optimistic vision of a social and democratic market economy.
