Social Protection After the Crisis

This final chapter returns to macro-level considerations, focusing on questions of state and economy, while engaging in some more speculative thinking about how the emerging order, a newly shaped ‘political capitalism’, might play out. This discussion incorporates considerations of both the resiliencies and vulnerabilities of neo-liberalism after the crisis, not least in terms of the new and still-emerging form of corporate-state inter-dependencies which have been forged. It also calls for a revised understanding of what is meant both by ‘regulation’ and, therefore, ‘regulatory reform’, arguing for a radical imagination in counter-hegemonic thought and practice.

Keywords:   neo liberalism, state corporate interdependence, radical imagination, regulation, reform, resilience, vulnerability
