About this title Synopsis: "Brilliant This agenda-setting text examines the efforts and failures of economic experts to make government and public life amenable to measurement, and to re-model society and state in terms of competition. In particular, it explores the practical use of economic techniques and conventions by policy-makers, politicians, regulators and judges and how these practices are being adapted to the perceived failings of the neoliberal model.

By picking apart the defining contradiction that arises from the conflation of economics and politics, this book asks: to what extent can economics provide government legitimacy?

Neoliberalism represents the enchantment of politics by economics via management - the "elevation of market-based principles and techniques of evaluation to the level of state-endorsed norms". So, if "it's easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism", how about analysing the limits of an ideology which many technocrats claim like fish who can't see water not to really exist?

In this work of "interpretive sociology", the author - a rather brilliant scholar with Neoliberalism represents the enchantment of politics by economics via management - the "elevation of market-based principles and techniques of evaluation to the level of state-endorsed norms". In this work of "interpretive sociology", the author - a rather brilliant scholar with an increasingly public profile - explains and contextualises the rise of neoliberalism. Economists, if they are to avoid their field being reduced to "groundless babble", take note.

In a neoliberal society, price is the ultimate arbiter of everything - a "modern fact" though if we are in a post-fact, post-truth world then are we also post-price? In order to sustain this, the state is perhaps surprisingly a powerful instrument of neoliberalism, and yet we see the state apparently under attack under neoliberal conditions - do the neoliberals dig their own grave?

Davies convincingly explains the history of neoliberalism, tied up with the rise of law and economics - which bakes concepts of competition into legal frameworks, achieving a "commensuration" of evidence in order to dethrone anti-trust principles by the "mere possibility" that a dominant firm could be challenged in the future being enough to put a lid on anti-monopolistic sentiment. The "science" of management's contribution to neoliberalism's rise comes in various forms, from strategy to new public management, not to mention managers' role as neoliberalism's executioners.

The contingent neoliberalism that emerges from a period of crisis lacks even the concept of equality of competitors and in such sense is "post-liberal".

The book leaves us contemplating the riddle that politics struggles to deal with the fact that people are individuals AND part of a collectivity.
