The neoliberal consensus, once thought to be undefeatable, seems to have been broken both in the wake of the fiscal crisis of 2008, as well as a series of surprise movements and elections throughout the world in the last several years. But many scholars argue that it remains alive and well, just in a changed, mutated form. This is the theme that motivates the recent anthology Mutant Neoliberalism: Market Rule and Political Rupture (Fordham University Press, 2020). The book features ten essay by a cast of writers covering the ways in which neoliberalism is mutating to stay alive in a changing environment.
