Judith Stein: “The United States, Globalization, and Neoliberalism”
February 20, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
I am at the beginning of a new project. Its specific shape will depend upon how much material I obtain from the Clinton presidential library and other government archives. I will briefly address these problems at our session. But I would like to use the session to present my preliminary ideas on the timing of neoliberalism and the role of globalization in its triumph the 1990s. To give you some notion of the ideas I am considering, I am including a paper I gave at a conference in Hong Kong in November. Because the conference theme was US-China relations, my paper was structured to address the topic. But as you will see next Thursday, US-China relations are only one aspect of the project.
