The Great Recoil: A Verso Roundtable


Covid-19 has thrown neoliberalism's fate into question as governments across the globe turn to state intervention and public investment to manage the pandemic's economic, health, and social effects. If neoliberalism's time is up, what comes next? Paolo Gerbaudo's new book, The Great Recoil: Politics after Populism and Pandemic, argues that we are entering a new era of neo-statist intervention and offers a blueprint for how the Left should respond to this moment. This week on the Blog, we're hosting a roundtable on The Great Recoil, inviting a discussion of the book, along with a response from Paolo Gerbaudo.
