There is a sense that we are now living through [events that mark a turning point between one epoch and the next, when one orthodoxy is overthrown and another takes its place]: barely a decade into the new millennium, barely 20 years since the end of the Cold War and barely 30 years since the triumph of neo-liberalism - that particular brand of free-market fundamentalism, extreme capitalism and excessive greed which became the economic orthodoxy of our time. The agent for this change is what we now call the global financial crisis... We therefore need a frank analysis of the central role of neo-liberalism in the underlying causes of the current economic crisis (Rudd, 2009).
