"Can we reform neoliberal system?


In the sixth conference of the cycle "Fight against inequalities", Colin Crouch talks about Neoliberalism. What is the impact of neoliberalism in our societies? What are the contradictions? What reforms does the neoliberal system need to reduce inequalities? The Professor of Warwik, speaks of three major contradictions of the neoliberal system: between corporate and market neoliberalism, between neoliberalism and xenophobic populist movements and between neoliberalism and the growth of inequalities. He also talks in detail about the concept of "post-democracy" and the importance of citizen organization in order to maintain a fair, social democracy in our societies, and not a democracy strongly influenced by lobbies and a small number of people of influence.
