Neoliberalism: Crisis and 'Postneoliberal' Tendencies

The state is rescuing capitalism. Neoliberalis is coming to its limits,
different crisis processes from the economic to ecological and political
crisis condense to an organic crisis. A "new state interventionism",
reregulation, intitiatives for a "green new deal" and other projects define
a field of "postneoliberal" struggles to restructure capitalism and develop
burgois rule. So the left has to deal not only with the crisis but also with
the dominant ways of their processing, with new projects coming up. A left
that developed in times of neoliberalism in the alst 35 years now has to
formulate a critique beyond neoliberalism and a new strategic approach for
radical transformation.
