Paul Smyth, General Manager Research and Policy Centre Brotherhood of St Laurence (2003-2013Summary: The authors explore the concept of the ‘social investment state’ examining major writings in which it has been developed. They consider policy developments in the United Kingdom and the European Union which exemplify the model, and reflect on elements of it which are emerging (though less explicitly at the federal level) in Australia. They argue that strengths of the social investment model include its reuniting of economic and social policy, its commitment to equality of opportunity and its fostering of economic participation (with the caution that participation is often too narrowly defined).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Dardot, Pierre [author.] | Laval, Christian [author.] | Elliott, Gregory [translator.].

Publisher: London : Brooklyn, NY : Verso, 2013Copyright date: �2013Description: 337 pages ; 25 cm.Notes: Translated from the French.Summary: "Exploring the genesis of neoliberalism, and the political and economic circumstances of its deployment, Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval dispel numerous common misconceptions. Neoliberalism is neither a return to classical liberalism nor the restoration of "pure" capitalism. To misinterpret neoliberalism is to fail to understand what is new about it: far from viewing the market as a natural given that limits state action, neoliberalism seeks to construct the market and make the firm a model for governments.
