(p.1) Introduction The open-market society and its opponents: an overview
Alternatives to Neoliberalism
Bryn Jones, Mike O’Donnell

This chapter provides a description and critique of neoliberalism with reference to both its Chicago School and Austrian varieties. At neoliberalism’s core is the adoption of market solutions to social as well as economic problems. The Introduction outlines the growing global impact of neoliberalism as an economic, political and cultural ideology with particular reference to the United States and Britain. It then reviews alternative approaches to neoliberalism: social democratic, Marxist, and a range of policies and ideas emerging from social movement activism, including feminism and the green movement. In summary the chapter argues that neoliberalism has disrupted the trilateral balance of the state, markets and civil society and calls for a ’rebalancing’ in favour of the re-empowerment of civil society.

Keywords:   civil society, ideology, market, neoliberalism, trilateral rebalancing
