The liberal conception of "freedom" is incapable of addressing the problems of contemporary capitalism

Andrea Lorenzo Capussela

Social Europe, 13.11.2018


The rise of populism and "illiberal democracies" are often viewed as a reaction to the failure of liberal capitalism to meet the needs of citizens.
