Abstract

In the deconstruction of the neoliberal narrative through immanent critique, we find that it is woven from enabling myths that not only support the neoliberal project, but are essential for its continued survival. This research aims to untangle and critically assess three of the core enabling myths of neoliberalism through the critical lens of immanent critique. If we hope to redesign our social institutions into structures which support the flourishing of individuals and the broader society, then we must aim a critical eye toward these enabling myths to unveil and debunk through immanent critique. © 2014, Journal of Economic Issues / Association for Evolutionary Economics.
