  • Orchestrating Poster Hamilton1 (1)

The economic stimulus which followed the 2007-08 global financial crisis have been succeeded by what we now call “austerity” measures – characterized by a renewed assault on public spending and further restructuring of social and labour market policies.

Claiming no viable alternatives exist, neoliberal politicians are selling austerity to the public as a virtuous necessity in the face of government deficits. With insights and inspirational stories of resistance from a range of scholars, as well as labour organizers and activists, Orchestrating Austerity tries to determine if there is something new in this era of austerity or if it is a continuation and intensification of earlier forms of neoliberalism.
