The fundamental beliefs of neoliberalism all represent extreme simplification of complicated processes with one goal in mind: To establish that the needs of corporations are the only focus of ‘good’ government.

Neoliberalism Debunked « The Firestick

This obviously extremist view has been propagated for decades to now become a strange orthodoxy that has remained largely unquestioned by economists or society at large. Sustained economic growth is the only way to human progress In neoliberal philosophy this growth is always defined as a global function. The global economy must continually increase in size, or the whole system will come crashing down.

Better Nature: commentary by Geoff Davies. Neither Prime Minister Kevin Rudds recent debunking of neoliberalism in The Monthly nor various commentaries (e.g. here, here, and here) have identified the core of the problem with neoliberalism.

Better Nature: commentary by Geoff Davies

The core problem is that there is no justification, in theory or in evidence, for the claim that free markets produce desirable results, let alone optimal results. This claim arises from the neoclassical theory of free markets, and is the foundation of the neoliberal ideology. Very few seem to be aware of this foundational weakness of the radical right. Viewed from my perspective as a scientist, the assumptions on which the neoclassical theory is built are blatantly and hopelessly unrealistic. For example, we are all supposed to be able to predict the future, to have complete information, to have timely information, to sensibly digest vast amounts of such information, and to be coldly rational, never responding to fashions or the insecurities that marketers constantly cultivate and milk.

Better Nature: commentary by Geoff Davies

The Global Financial Collapse, which is rapidly becoming the Global Economic Collapse, is provoking deserved criticism of the neoliberal ideology that has dominated the world for three decades. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, in his recentdebunking of neoliberalism inThe Monthly, says markets need to be managed, but clearly many free-marketeers will resist reforms. We therefore need to be very clear. This was not an imperfection.

It was not an unfortunate episode in an otherwise glorious record. The core problem with neoliberalism is that there is no justification, in theory or in evidence, for the claim that free markets produce desirable results, let alone optimal results. The assumptions on which the neoclassical theory is built are blatantly and hopelessly unrealistic. Nor is the neoclassical theory even remotely a useful first approximation. This implies there is no single best way to organise an economy. So much for theory, what about evidence? Neoliberalism, the Revolution in Reverse. By any reasonable measure, the neoliberal dream lies in tatters.

Neoliberalism, the Revolution in Reverse

In 2008 poorly regulated financial markets yielded a world-historic financial collapse. One generation, weaned on reveries of home ownership as the coveted badge of economic independence and old-fashioned American striving, has been plunged into foreclosure, bankruptcy, and worse. And a successor generation of aspiring college students is now discovering that their equally toxic student-loan dossiers are condemning them to lifetimes of debt. Both before and after 2008, ours has been an economic order that, largely designed to reward paper speculation and penalize work, produces neither significant job growth nor wages that keep pace with productivity.

In the face of all this catastrophism, the placid certainties of neoliberal ideology rattle on as though nothing has happened.

The number of hours you should work a week to be the most productive: 35 – A Life of Productivity. Takeaway: To be the most productive and creative, studies have shown that you should work 35 hours a week.

The number of hours you should work a week to be the most productive: 35 – A Life of Productivity

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes, 9s. A lot of people think that to be the most productive they should work for 60 hours a week, but study after study has shown that the optimal number of hours you should work is about half that number, at 35. An interesting thing happens after you work more than 35 hours a week:1 Though your productivity may spike up at first, over time, as you don’t step away from your work, your productivity takes a nosedive as you become increasingly fatigued and stressed, even though you might not notice it at first. It also costs you because you can’t take a step back from your work to see it from a higher, more elevated perspective.

The problem is that even though people aren’t actually more productive when they work overtime, they feel more productive (multitasking has a similar effect): Fresh productivity posts delivered to your inbox each Monday morning.

Carte : le revenu universel et ses expérimentations dans le monde

LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Mathilde Damgé C’est l’une des innombrables ironies de l’histoire : l’un des seuls exemples viables, actuellement, du principe du « revenu universel » vient d’une tribu indienne aux Etats-Unis, les Cherokees. Or, ce sont des Indiens qui ont inspiré, trois siècles plus tôt, le père spirituel de ce concept : l’un des premiers à théoriser le revenu universel, Thomas Paine, s’était notamment basé sur l’observation d’un accès égal à l’usage de la terre chez les Indiens au XVIIIe siècle, pour en déduire la nécessité d’une dotation (chaque adulte recevant un lopin de terre à sa majorité) afin de corriger la dérive historique qu’est l’appropriation de la rente foncière.

Pas de rebond pour l’économie mondiale en 2016

Après le Fonds monétaire international (FMI) et la Banque mondiale, lors de leur assemblée de printemps en avril, c’est au tour de l’Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques (OCDE) de tirer la sonnette d’alarme. Ce « club » de 34 pays riches estime que la croissance mondiale sera tout juste de 3 % cette année.

Et mise, pour 2017, sur un très léger rebond à 3,3 %. DIRECT. Regardez sur France 2 l'émission "L’Angle éco" consacrée à "la guerre des âges" Retrouvez ici l'intégralité de notre live #LANGLECO.
