The growth of neo-liberalism has been the dominant political force in the past two decades. This volume concentrates on understanding the political economy of neo-liberalism. It focuses on a number of the most critical issues and examines the essence of neo-liberalism, namely, the dominance of the market. In particular, the authors consider: * the political economy of market expansion * the rise of neo-liberalism in advanced capitalist economies * the notion of social capital * the nature of economic imperialism * the political economy of central bank independence * the relationship between Keynes and Marx. With contributions by some of the leading scholars in the field, this vital new book on the political economy of neo-liberalism and the dominance of the market will become essential reading for all those with an interest in post Keynesian economics, political economy and international economic policy.

`This is a stimulating collection of essays, which will inform and provoke both friend and foe of neo-liberalism alike. A recurrent, though not all-encompassing, theme in the book concerns the issue of the relationship between social structure and human agency.' -- P.A. Lewis, Economics & Philosophy
