Air Date 12/8/2023 Neoliberalism has created a lot of economic suffering and insecurity in addition to weakened social ties over the past few decades. And now, in what may be the most devastating result of the ideology yet, neoliberalism may be leading much of the world toward fascism bolstered by legitimate grievances about economic precarity which are coopted by the false promises of right-wing populism.

We continue to explore the concept of power by asking how neoliberalism might be both informing our understanding of power and changing how it manifests. Combining a number of insights from previous guests, we wade into the myriad ways power manifests in our neoliberal world and why we need to consider the many different kinds of power both distinctly and collectively. We were honored to be led in this conversation by Dr. Wendy Brown, UPS Foundation Professor, School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study. --- Dr. Wendy Brown is a political theorist who works across the history of political thought, political economy, Continental philosophy, cultural theory, and critical legal theory. Brown investigates the subterranean powers shaping contemporary Euroatlantic polities, with particular attention to the political identities, subjectivities, and expressions they spawn. She is the author or co-author of a dozen books, including States of Injury: Power and Freedom in Late Modernity; Regulating Aversion: Tolerance in the Age of Identity and Empire; Walled States, Waning Sovereignty; Undoing the Demos: Neoliberalism's Stealth Revolution; and In the Ruins of Neoliberalism: The Rise of Antidemocratic Politics in the West. Across her work, Brown aims to illuminate powers unique to our era and the predicaments they generate for democratic thought and practice. --- While it would be impossible to cite all of her influential work on power here, the publications below provide a useful starting point for her scholarship: Brown, W. (2020). States of injury: Power and freedom in late modernity. Princeton University Press. Brown, W. (2015). Undoing the demos: Neoliberalism's stealth revolution. Mit Press. Brown, W. (2006).

How do you reconcile between Antisemitism and American Rights to Freedom of Speech and Expression? What is Antisemitism? In this episode, I discuss this conflict within the context of liberal arts and liberal studies, that promotes human values and ethics. In fact I recently posted via a Tweet, "What's at #conflict here? It is one thing to be #american and have #freedomofspeech and #freedomofexpression. Which means you get to criticize and provide negative opinions about anything or anyone irrespective of how sanctimonious others may perceive a thing. Then there is #Antisemitism, which is tantamount to #HateSpeech. But critiquing is not #hate yet we seem to be confusing the two. Then there is #hate which is a #freeemotion but when put into words is a crime, yet speech is free. However, it is the acting out that hate into violence that is not acceptable. People cannot be prevented from hating and promoting their hate. That's #american, to speak one's mind which is what makes us #exceptional? Yet to act on that in any destructive ways is a crime and against #God. That is what is criminal and #unamerican. @elonmusk We discuss on #TheNeoLiberalRoundPodcast https://anchor.fm/theneoliberal and will publish it as a shirt blog/post in The NeoLiberal Creator/Host: Prof. Renaldo McKenzie (Rev.), President of The NeoLiberal Corporation and the Renaldo McKenzie Corporation, Author of Neoliberalism, Globalization, Income Inequality, Poverty and Resistance, Creator and Host of The NeoLiberal Round Podcast and The NeoLiberal Round YouTube Channel.

What is the work ethic? Does it justify policies that promote the wealth and power of the One Percent at workers' expense? Or does it advance policies that promote workers' dignity and standing? Hijacked: How Neoliberalism Turned the Work Ethic against Workers and How Workers Can Take It Back (Cambridge UP, 2023) explores how the history of political economy has been a contest between these two ideas about whom the work ethic is supposed to serve. Today's neoliberal ideology deploys the work ethic on behalf of the One Percent. However, workers and their advocates have long used the work ethic on behalf of ordinary people. By exposing the ideological roots of contemporary neoliberalism as a perversion of the seventeenth-century Protestant work ethic, Elizabeth Anderson shows how we can reclaim the original goals of the work ethic, and uplift ourselves again. Hijacked persuasively and powerfully demonstrates how ideas inspired by the work ethic informed debates among leading political economists of the past, and how these ideas can help us today.  Elizabeth Anderson is the Max Mendel Shaye Professor of Public Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at University of Michigan. She is the author of Value in Ethics and Economics (1995), The Imperative of Integration (2010), and Private Government: How Employers Rule Our Lives (and Why We Don't Talk about It) (2017). She is a MacArthur Fellow and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2019, The New Yorker described her as 'a champion of the view that equality and freedom are mutually dependent [...] Anderson may be the philosopher best suited to this awkward moment in American life.'

What is the work ethic? Does it justify policies that promote the wealth and power of the One Percent at workers' expense? Or does it advance policies that promote workers' dignity and standing? Hijacked: How Neoliberalism Turned the Work Ethic against Workers and How Workers Can Take It Back (Cambridge UP, 2023) explores how the history of political economy has been a contest between these two ideas about whom the work ethic is supposed to serve. Today's neoliberal ideology deploys the work ethic on behalf of the One Percent. However, workers and their advocates have long used the work ethic on behalf of ordinary people. By exposing the ideological roots of contemporary neoliberalism as a perversion of the seventeenth-century Protestant work ethic, Elizabeth Anderson shows how we can reclaim the original goals of the work ethic, and uplift ourselves again. Hijacked persuasively and powerfully demonstrates how ideas inspired by the work ethic informed debates among leading political economists of the past, and how these ideas can help us today.  Elizabeth Anderson is the Max Mendel Shaye Professor of Public Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at University of Michigan. She is the author of Value in Ethics and Economics (1995), The Imperative of Integration (2010), and Private Government: How Employers Rule Our Lives (and Why We Don't Talk about It) (2017).

We were Live in Germantown Philadelphia for their Local Government Elections. On this noisy but epic episode, we had a chance to participate in the Local Government elections for city Mayor, Councilors and Judges in Philly, and conducted several interviews with those present at the polling station including: voters and polling station workers and the surrogates working for the candidates. We even got a chance to do a quick Live out-door studio show recorded before an audience comprising residents of the community who took particular interest in the conversations we had with Kevin Poole who spared no time to speak at length with us about Philadelphia Politics, Cherelle Parker, Donald Trump and why he should be ineligible and the state of our country's conscience and the decadence of its morality. Kevin Poole, who is a Democratic Committee member in the 59th ward 10th division was campaigning for Cherelle and was confident that she would get the nomination to ne the 100th mayor of Philadelphia. Moreover, Cherelle would also become the first woman and fist black woman if she were elected. We did the recording on the day of the elections while at the polling station in Germantown Philadelphia on Wednesday November 8, 2023. Cherelle Parker, a Democratic candidate eventually won the mayoral race by a landslide, beating David Oh, the GOP candidate. We also had a chance to speak with several other volunteer workers who had much advice for the candidates vying to become the next crop of leaders who will steer Philly in the next phase of this century. On top of people's concerns were Homelessness, Poverty, Crime and Violence and Education. One conversation was quite interesting especially when a resident of the area stated that homelessness needs to be a big thing just as how elections are big and the candidates have posters and flyers all over, he stated that we need to see more of homeless resources being promoted in the city with the same level of urgency. The show was intense, deep and an enriching experience. We drew attention from several onlookers as we conducted the interviews in open space at the polling station.

Adam Smith wrote that, “Political economy belongs to no nation; it is of no country: it is the science of the rules for the production, the accumulation, the distribution, and the consumption of wealth.” However Adam Smith regarded the science of political economy, in practical terms, one is quite hard pressed to find a case where governments—be it an empire, republic, or nation—were completely left out of the picture. At least, that is how it's been historically. Questions about how people and other types of entities organize and generate capital, AND the role that governments play in all of this, fill libraries. The ramifications of the dynamics and rules surrounding money have proved so consequential—and increasingly so, in our increasingly technologized world—that it is no surprise that historians have devoted much energy to the study of political economy. Political economy, in the broadest terms, is the subject of our conversation today. Today on History Ex we put two recent books that bring important perspectives to these questions in conversation with each other. In this conversation Philip Stern and Quinn Slobodian discuss: • Empire, Incorporated. The Corporations That Built British Colonialism (Belknap Press of Harvard University Press in 2023), by Philip J. Stern. • Crack-Up Capitalism: Market Radicals and the Dream of a World Without Democracy (Metropolitan Books, 2023), by Quinn Slobodian. The periods of time being studied are centuries apart and marked by much innovation. Our authors find points of convergence as well as divergence in aims, methods, and outcomes of the people at the center of their books. Stern and Slobodian discuss methodologies and chronologies, the ideologies that animated their actors, how memory and history were mobilized in promoting various visions; they probe the historian's perennial challenges of disentangling ideologies from interest, explain how similar actions in different historical contexts can demand different interpretations; and more. Philip Stern is an associate professor of History at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. His work focuses on various aspects of the legal, political, intellectual, and business histories that shaped the British Empire. He is also the author of The Company-State: Corporate Sovereignty and the Early Modern Foundations of the British Empire in India (Oxford University Press, 2011) and many other scholarly works. Quinn Slobodian is a professor of the history at Wellesley College in Massachusetts. He is also the author of the award-winning Globalists: The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism (Harvard University Press, 2018), which has been translated into six languages, and a frequent contributor to the Guardian, New Statesman, The New York, Times, Foreign Policy, Dissent and the Nation.

Japan-based feminist scholar, Dr. Isabel Fassbender, discusses her new book, Active Pursuit of Pregnancy: Neoliberalism, Postfeminism and the Politics of Reproduction in Contemporary Japan, and how a toxic mix of patriarchy, biomedical capitalism, and nationalism has emerged in response to Japan's slightly declining population. As a country whose ecological footprint is nearly 8 times its biocapacity, and whose citizens chronically suffer from a culture of overwork and socio-economic and political disempowerment, Japan should be welcoming a decline in its population. However, in keeping with its lowest rank on the gender equality index among industrialized countries, Japan has instead created a sense of panic around the declining birth rate, and has employed a series of exploitative tactics to compel Japanese women to produce more babies. By joining forces with the multi-billion dollar fertility industry, Japanese politicians have infiltrated the mass media and the education system to teach young women about the importance of family and reproduction; meanwhile, the quality of sex education, abortion provision, and reproductive rights remain abysmally poor. Isabel is empowering her college students to think critically about these rigid gender and pronatalist norms and to become politically engaged to confront them.

The Neoliberal Round Podcast is thrilled to bring you an exclusive look at the ongoing legal saga that has taken the political world by storm. In this episode, we delve into the Castro v Trump series, a legal battle with profound implications for American politics. Mr. John Anthony Castro, the main plaintiff in this lawsuit and a US Presidential candidate, is at the forefront of this extraordinary legal showdown. Part 5 of the #castrovtrump Series: As we eagerly await Part 5 of this captivating podcast series, we can't help but reflect on the journey so far. The series explores the lawsuit initiated by Mr. #JohnAnthonyCastro against Mr. #donaldtrump, alleging a violation of Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment of the US Constitution. This section stipulates that no person who has previously sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States may engage in insurrection or rebellion against the nation or provide aid to its enemies. The lawsuit raises significant questions about the legitimacy of Mr. Trump's candidacy and, by extension, the integrity of the US political system. Legal Complexities: Mr. Castro's legal battle is laden with complexities and nuances. He argues that the mainstream media's lack of coverage is due to a broader strategy by Democrats to pave the way for Mr. Trump's return to the Presidency. His legal journey has seen multiple legal maneuverings and court rulings. One such issue revolves around the concept of standing, a critical factor in the lawsuit. The debate centers on whether Mr. Castro's candidacy is legitimate, as his name did not appear on any State ballot at the time. A Fight for Justice: Mr. Castro's commitment to this case is unwavering. He has filed an appeal to the Eleventh Circuit District Court in an effort to challenge the ruling that he lacks standing. Furthermore, he plans to take this case to the Supreme Court if necessary.... Other points that will be considered too numerous to state here: 1. Challenges to Judge Recusal: 2. Term Limits for Supreme Court Justices: 3. A Global Perspective: Conclusion: The Castro v Trump series offers an intriguing and unique insight into the American legal and political landscape. Mr. John Anthony Castro's relentless pursuit of justice and the intricacies of the legal battle make this story a significant one. As we anticipate Part 5 of the series, it is essential to consider the broader implications for the nation's political future. Will this legal battle reshape American politics, or is it destined to remain a captivating chapter in the annals of political history?

The traditional economic concepts that the Global North has been using since WWII assume that there is an infinite planet and that pollution has no economic consequences - assumptions that are wildly wrong. In contrast, ecological economics is a model designed to respect the fact that our economy exists on a finite planet and puts more emphasis on the quality of economic activity than its quantity. But a shift in mindset of this magnitude to embrace this new way of thinking requires guidance and a proper roadmap if it's to be successfully integrated into urban policies. This episode sees Cities 1.5 looking to translate the theoretical into the practical by speaking to one of the world's leading ecological economists, Tim Jackson, for a stand alone interview to help demonstrate what cities can do to deliver shared prosperity - not just an unsustainable goal of infinite growth.Featured guests:Tim Jackson is Professor of Sustainable Development at the University of Surrey and Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity - a multi-disciplinary, international research consortium that aims to explore the economic, social, and political dimensions of sustainable prosperity.

In this profound episode, our host journeys through the intricacies of personal experiences and deftly aligns them with the larger societal and political fabric of America. Initially, he dives deep into the realm of intimate relationships, shedding light on the vulnerability, challenges, and revelations that come with them. By drawing parallels between personal choices and societal judgments, he underscores how our most personal moments can sometimes mirror the bigger societal constructs. Our host moves from the realm of the personal to the vast expanse of political dynamics, where the figure of Donald Trump takes center stage. Trump's enigmatic resilience is dissected, with a keen observation on how every challenge, whether it's an indictment or criticism, amplifies his political gravitas. This exploration lays bare the American political spectrum, from populist movements to perceived establishment factions, and the challenges of navigating this landscape. Diving into urban socio-economic challenges, the episode touches upon the tangible consequences of rising crime rates, drug epidemics, and the disintegration of urban spaces. The closure of commercial outlets in inner cities, like the mention of 117th St. target and Market Street Walmart, serves as an exemplar of how larger economic forces can profoundly impact local communities, resulting in food deserts and scarcity. Media's role in shaping public perception is critically evaluated. With mentions of influential figures like Tucker Carlson, Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Tate, and Tim Pool, the episode digs deep into how these personalities shape, challenge, or validate public opinion. The potential for media to both reflect and shape societal norms and political inclinations becomes evident. The episode also doesn't shy away from contentious issues. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, censorship concerns, and the broader challenges to free speech, especially within the ambit of social media, are highlighted. Our host accentuates the implications of these issues, pointing out that the very core of democratic values is often tested in these arenas. Closing on a note of introspection and anticipation, "Navigating Nuanced Realities" emerges as a magnum opus of reflection, providing listeners with a panoramic view of individual dilemmas intertwined with the socio-political intricacies of contemporary America. Glossary of Terms: Neo Lib & Neo Con: Political ideologies wherein Neoliberalism champions free-market capitalism with limited government intervention, and Neoconservatism emphasizes an assertive foreign policy. NIMBY (Not In My Backyard): Describes opposition by residents to local developments or projects, based on the premise that while they may be necessary, they shouldn't be close to them. Populist Movements: Grassroots political movements that aim to represent common people, often rallying behind charismatic leaders. Narcan: A life-saving nasal spray for the emergency treatment of opioid overdose. RICO Law: Legislation aiming at penalizing acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise, notably organized crime. Censorship: The act of suppressing content deemed obscene, politically unacceptable, or a security threat. Palestine & Israel: Denotes the longstanding geopolitical conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Watch and or listen to the story as narrated by Donte Nelson and Renaldo McKenzie with dynamic background music and captivating videos specifically placed to go with the audio and the story and is also included for figurative imagery depicting the story of Hamas revenge and Israel's defiance. The Prose is written by Renaldo McKenzie for The NeoLiberal Round Podcast and The NeoLiberal Journals. The presentation is done in podcast format and therefore raw, and edgy, yet profound and deep. Here's an excerpt of the short in prose: A True Story in Prose to Ponder: A man has two houses on a large parcel of land; he divided it into two. One is dilapidated, while the other is a beautiful, income-generating edifice on better land. One day, another man from a powerful country (known as the foreigner thief), aided by his influential friends, forcefully stole and evicted the man from the superior part of the land. For years, he tried to reason with the foreigner thief, who had stolen his home and land, making it his family's abode and source of profit. The thief refused to return the home.

The majority of U.S. workers aren't compensated anywhere near the value that they actually create for society, while the few who make the most money often work the least and contribute very little. Decades of neoliberal thinking has twisted one of the foundational American beliefs—the idea that hard work eventually reaps great rewards—into a celebration of greed and a dismissal of those of us who work the hardest. Returning guest Elizabeth Anderson explains how we can reclaim the American work ethic in order to once again center workers as the true heroes of the American economy. Professor Elizabeth Anderson specializes in moral, social and political philosophy, feminist theory, social epistemology, and the philosophy of economics and the social sciences. She is the author of several books including Private Government: How Employers Rule Our Lives and, most recently, Hijacked: How Neoliberalism Turned the Work Ethic against Workers and How Workers Can Take It Back.

Welcome to The NeoLiberal Round Podcast! Join your host, Renaldo McKenzie, author of "Neoliberalism, Globalization, Income Inequality, Poverty and Resistance," and co-host Donte T. Nelson, Producer and Deputy Content Engineer at The NeoLiberal Corporation, in this enlightening episode. In this installment, Renaldo shares a deeply personal journey of academic struggle during his youth, growing up in an environment that didn't prioritize academic and intellectual excellence or literary scholarship at the highest levels. Despite these challenges, he harbored a dream of making a profound impact on academia, much like an Einstein. Fast forward to today, where Renaldo has achieved just that with his first published academic book, "Neoliberalism," and an upcoming one, "Neoliberal Globalization Reconsidered," featuring Prof. Emeritus Dr. Martin Oppenheimer. Renaldo opens up about how his resilience paved the way for acceptance into an Ivy League college, the University of Pennsylvania, and his current pursuit of a doctorate at Georgetown University. Not stopping there, he also serves as an Adjunct Professor at Jamaica Theological Seminary and manages his own, albeit struggling, company. Listen in as Renaldo sheds light on the importance of "The Celebration of Disciplines," including the discipline of Solitude (silence), a concept he discovered in a book by Richard Foster after encountering his mentor at the seminary. These principles have grounded him and provided a much-needed focus. This episode marks the first part of a compelling three-part series with Donte Nelson as co-host, delving into their unique stories—a journey filled with challenges, struggles, and powerful learning experiences. Discover how every obstacle has become an opportunity for growth, skill acquisition, and overall improvement in their shows and websites.

Professor Joseph S.

Professor Nye, who co-founded the neoliberalist school of thought, provides his take on what people get wrong about it. The hosts and Professor Nye discuss what 'soft power' is, in addition to recent concepts around 'smart power' and 'sharp power'. A'ndre and Andrew also question Professor Nye about his views on what constitutes a 'moral' foreign policy, as Nye provides his rankings on U.S. Presidents and their own moral foreign policies.

Dr. Rasmus comments on a Wall St. Journal report of Sept. 8 admitting that revisions to US data and reports are showing bigger swings in corrections and occurring more often. The show addresses his oft-stated view that the Covid recession fundamentally impacted labor, product and financial markets in ways that US data and statistical reports have not caught up to yet, thus the more frequent and greater revisions to the data. Rasmus explains how JOLT stats (job openings to unemployment ratio), employment surveys, and inflation stats are growing more inaccurate in the post-Covid era. The show then describes how housing, energy, and food prices have begun to rise again and the reasons why Fed interest rate hikes don't have as great an impact on lowering demand and therefore prices. The show ends with a return to the topic of labor exploitation begun a few weeks ago, showing how aggregate data of relative shares, CO to worker pay, productivity, and Prof. Saez data on the income and wealth of richest 1% households in US continues to rise after every recession. (Next week: How Classical Economists from Adam Smith to Marx explained labor exploitation and why exploitation has been intensifying once again under Neoliberalism since 1980 and especially after 2008-09 crash).

In the book, Edwards (who also received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1981) outlines the complexities of implementing market-oriented policies in a society undergoing rapid change.
