Neoliberalism: A Very Short Introduction explores the considerable variations of neoliberalism around the world, and discusses the origins, evolution, and core ideas of neoliberalism. Neoliberalism emerged as the world's dominant economic paradigm in the 1990s. The global financial crash of 2008 and the subsequent emergence of more nationalist ideologies have challenged both neoliberal assumptions and related financial systems—a development most spectacularly reflected in 2016's pro-Brexit referendum in the UK and the Trump election victory in the same year. This VSI asks whether changing versions of neoliberalism might succeed in drowning out the calls for a return to territorial sovereignty and national greatness.
