Sample text

Hayek admits that state coercion of individuals is inevitable, but argues that this should be limited ‘to instances where it is required to prevent coercion by private persons’ (p. 20). So far, this resembles the basic normative proposition recognisable from the publications of neoliberal think tanks. However, Hayek also allows for a potentially much greater role for the state than is suggested by the ‘freedom from coercion’ principle. He argues that so long as state-coercive rules are ‘known general rules’, widely understood and not applicable to particular classes of individual, then they are permissible.

Mirowski 2009: 441) For Mirowski, then, those who question the influence of fundamentalist neoliberals based upon the lack of alignment between their advocacy and the policy practices of neoliberal governments mischaracterise the agenda of the fundamentalist neoliberals. According to this argument, evidence of a highly regulating neoliberal state, in which government expenditure was not retrenched, does nothing to discount the influence of fundamentalist neoliberal intellectuals. Rather, according to Mirowski, this was precisely what they intended.

Indeed, at the height of the neoliberal era, Friedman would argue that the major capitalist economies still embodied the principle of ‘creeping or stagnant socialism’ (Friedman 2002: viii) because state expenditure had not been retrenched to his preferred level. Friedman also pioneered the doctrine of monetarism, arguing that central banks should target the quantity of money in an economy, rather than the exchange rate, interest rates, or even the price level, and have as their aim a steady increase in the supply of money (Friedman 1968).
