Neoliberal Resilience

Aldo Madariaga

Princeton University Press

This chapter shows how the policy preferences of major actors developed into concrete government coalitions and social blocs that supported neoliberalism as a long-term political project. It examines how business actors pursued their policy preferences and gained political influence in different historical settings. It also discusses initial coalitions that transformed into durable social blocs and defended neoliberalism as a political project. The chapter highlights the importance of actors supporting neoliberalism, as well as the experience and fate of actors who supported alternative development projects. It confirms that the strength of the financial, competitive, and noncompetitive economic sectors was crucial to explaining the resilience of neoliberalism.

Keywords:   policy preferences, government coalitions, social blocs, neoliberalism, political project, major actors
