I just read some David Harvey primarily to avoid a paradaig ribbing.
There's not alot to disagree with, is there? Pretty safe and base line critique, and plenty of track covering equivocation- was surprised to see he was nice to blair and clinton and even the original mont perelin guys. My primary problem was that it was, well, brief. Lots of listing going on.You don't think anything is wrong with it?
To be fair to Harvey he's not exactly hidden the politics of what he is trying to do?Of course you do, which is fine. But that's what the book sets out to do. It doesn't set out to present a history of neoliberalism, like the title suggests or the way OUP marketed it. It's more like a political pamphlet.
It's not really conspiracy to say that Thatcher (for example) had a bunch of libertarian types around her who wanted to work together to break union power and privatise the shit out of everything.
