I think the term “neoliberalism” can mean something useful and specific if we’re more cognizant of its use.It seems to me that a lot of the confusion around the term is that it is used in at least two senses: one indicates a period in time, and one indicates an ideology. Just as “the Cold War” or “modernity” can refer to both a historical time-frame and a dominant ideology that shaped that historical period, “neoliberal” can mean both “now” and the ideology that informs this “now.”
