review Undoing the Demos Neoliberalism's Stealth Revolution 109 Neoliberal rationality ubiuitous today in statecraft and the workplace in jurisprudence education and culture remakes everything and everyone in the image of homo oeconomicus What happens when this rationality transposes the constituent elements of democracy into an economic register In Undoing the Demos Wendy Brown explains how democracy itself is imperiled The demos disintegrates into bits of In this absolutely brilliant book Brown takes apart our current mode of socio cultural organization and how it forecloses possibilities for democratic thought and action She builds on Foucault s notion that neoliberalism is simultaneously an expansion from and break with classical Liberalism largely in the sense that it takes classical economics and the Liberal emphasis on individual freedom and it empties those ideas of all non economicnon market content thereby reconceptualizing subjects as homo oeconomicus and eliminating homo politicus In other words each subject becomes a form of human capital responsible both to him or herself for increasing in value but also responsible to society for increasing value However society has no reciprocal obligations because the realms of the social political and public are if not eliminated entirely reduced as much as possible to the sphere of a competitive market in which there are no public obligations and any capital can be eliminated as soon as it ceases to be economically efficient This of course explains why there is so much reluctance to fund things like the arts in schools higher education which could easily be offered for free in the US and why corporations play such a major part in writing legislation that benefits the corporations at the expense of middle and working class people Brown ties all of this back to shrinking possibilities for democratic action as neoliberal governance and rationality both terms she explains clearly contribute to the erosion of political subjects and a public sphere if we can only think of ourselves as capital competing in a market place there is no theoretical space in which we could think of ourselves as engaged in discussions for a common good or providing public services without relying on them providing a good financial return

review Undoing the Demos Neoliberalism's Stealth Revolution 109 Human capital; concerns with justice bow to the mandates of growth rates credit ratings and investment climates; liberty submits to the imperative of human capital appreciation; euality dissolves into market competition; and popular sovereignty grows incoherent Liberal democratic practices may not survive these transformations Radical democratic dreams may not eitherIn an original and compelli As a feminist a devotee of Foucault studied in biopolitics Wendy Brown s writings while perhaps an acuired taste especially those uninitiated into the throes and thrills of advanced thinking in both ideologies and that intersection where the soft power of economic force meets the now endangered engine of political force worldwide should be reuired reading for even armchair warriors who want to better understand political dynamics both inside the United States and around the world at large While the neoliberal imaginary has been moving towards realization since the 1960s first making an overstated cameo appearance in the assassination of Salvador Allende by the CIA under President Richard Nixon s direction in 1973 all of it an experiment designed to see if the theories of Milton Friedman s idea of a market freed of outside intervention we call this free market economics today regardless of its hideous failures from Brazil to Argentina to post Soviet Russia and much of Latin America the increasing freuency of free trade agreements and the economic capture of the International Monetary Fund by neoliberal ideologues intent upon forcing neoliberal governmentalization to all countries in need of loans and help in the wake of the worldwide 2008 economic downturn should indicate to even common American citizens that the very concept of democracy in the US and elsewhere is being hijacked Many terms in our political situation have been re interpreted in order to adhere to the neoliberal imaginary marketplace of ideas this endless need for in our political campaigns all sorts of out of place terminology and indeed people do perceive on gut level that something is not uite right and many are then directed to blame the federal government when the culprit is neoliberalism itself Ms Brown unmasks this stealth revolution many simply are unwilling to accept after over 35 years of continual propaganda barrage on AM radio on television in commercialism in general and now ideologues are now bent upon punishing poor people Brown goes into detail regarding the hot mess Greece became when it became evident that not only were wealthy Greeks skipping out on their duties as Greek citizens in terms of paying taxes but were willing to take it even further in suirreling money in offshore banking havens even while a simple ride in a helicopter over Athens could put lies pleading poverty to rest The neoliberalism tactic of austerity bludgeoned Greece s poor to the point that the Greek people elected a Socialist government and sought to repudiate the IMF s bullying tactics but eventually lost due to lack of ready cash This has also occurred in Italy Ireland parts of eastern Europe and most especially in Spain when indignatos took to the streets rioting against forced austerity embodiesdin the relinuishment of social welfare programs in favor of saving capital expenditures This is happening in Brazil too Most pointedly during the World Soccer Cup matches a couple of years ago when the Brazilian federal government pled poverty in terms of offering help to the huge favellas massive and unsanitary ghettos on the hills around Rio De Janero only to turn right around and spend close to a billion dollars to build stadiums beach side hotels and infrastructure repair for a silly sports ball event the poor of Brazil also rioted to the point that the WSA nearly canceled the games out of fear of well being burned alive by poor people so desperate they had no options beyond gaining the world s attention over patent injustices that nevertheless persist All the fancy dancers and disco goers seemed unconcerned by any of this mainly because the poor in Brazilian eyes are to be out of sight and out of mind Why feed poor people when one can do the Bossa Nova and get hip over some foreign fad that enthralls Europeans Brown does not go into outrage so much as examination She is perhaps the world s finest commentator and explorer of the underbelly of an economic ideology that seeks to dominate and even destroy democracy freedom euality justice and simply in favor of coddling the wealthy This writer suspects the backlash against neoliberal ideology is going to be fierce and destructive mainly because the wealthy are in deep denial over their reciprocal obligation to use an economic term towards the society and culture that made their wealth possible in the first place Let s hope the international business set that visits Davos each year gets on the problem and solves this nastiness before it s too late This is a difficult read but well worth the effort and the recourse to the dictionary
