By Coach C TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 19 2009
Format: Hardcover
Contrary to the title, this collection of essays about neoliberalization, otherwise referred to as "The Washington Consensus" is not just an anti-neoliberal polemic. The collection includes essays that defend it, and in fact define its doctrine in more concrete terms.

The book is therefore difficult to summarize as each individual essay has their own thesis, writing style, arguments, etc... The authors, to each their own, are some of the leading economic theorists of our time, including but not limited to John Williamson, Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Krugman, Jeffrey Frankel and more.

If you want to learn more about the macroeconomic theory behind the Friedman style economics, beyond the coles notes version you get in popular books like the "Shock Doctrine" of Naomi Klein, than this book is for you.
