Neoliberalism/Crouch: Crouch does not use the term "neoliberalism" in the sense of economic theory. The process of post-democratization (see Post-Democracy/Crouch) is attributed to the influence of neoliberalism.
Crouch thesis: Neoliberalism gives economic interests priority over the welfare state and an egalitarian understanding of the common good, and sees the free market as the best means of satisfying individual and social needs.
CrouchVsNeoliberalism: "Overlap": Market economy logic is no longer used only in the sphere of economy, but also in the political and social sphere. (1)
