Wendy Brown on Neoliberalism - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 74f
Neoliberalism/Brown: Brown does not use the term "neoliberalism" in the sense of economic theory.
Brown thesis: the neoliberal rationality is expansive and "extending and disseminating market values to all institutions and social action".(1) The penetration of economic logic into all areas of life and politics is not unproblematic from the perspective of democracy theory.
Democracy/Brown: this is contrary to basic democratic values. (See Democracy/Brown).
Neoliberalism (...) represents a paradigm that has a lasting influence on our thinking and reasoning by implicitly evaluating terms and concepts - behind the speakers' backs, so to speak - and thus distinguishing specific actions and justifications normatively and making them connectable and devaluing others.
