“Neoliberalism and How We Got Trumped” with Dr. Tait Szabo

The term “neoliberalism” has been used to describe the political and economic system that has been dominant in the United States since the 1970s, but what is it and how can understanding it help us understand the growing economic inequalities we see today? In this presentation, Dr. Szabo explains how neoliberalism has shaped our society, politics, and economy, and how it helps make sense of the election of Donald Trump in 2016. His presentation enables us to recognize what steps we can take as community members to respond to our political and economic reality.

Tait Szabo (Ph.D., UC-Boulder, 2007) is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at UW-Washington County. Professor Szabo’s primary interests lie in the areas of applied ethics and political philosophy. His current project is on neoliberalism.
