Abstract

In a dizzying global economy full of injustices that threaten our freedom, people who want to promote justice should be disposed to solidarity with each other. When global supply chains assemble products from every corner of the global and workers' economic futures seem ever more uncertain, the very neoliberal theories that helped usher in this world also provide a powerful way to understand and navigate it. Those who want to resist the injustices of today's global economy need to reorient their way of seeing so that it is possible to act more effectively. By drawing on a diverse range of thinkers from G.W.F. Hegel and John Rawls to W.E.B. Du Bois and Iris Marion Young, 'Disorienting Neoliberalism' provides an account of freedom that can inform transnational movements for justice.
