Dr Jörg Wiegratz discusses the arrival of The New Normal

Lecturer in Political Economy of Global Development, Dr Jörg Wiegratz, considers the phenomenon of The New Normal in market societies of the post-crash capitalist world.

His article in Le Monde diplomatique begins:

“Today’s world is a fast-changing and conflict-laden territory. States and businesses in many places have fine-tuned their priorities to the post-crash requirements of power, profit, survival and renewal. Various post-crash establishment ideologies are on offer: from ’change we need’ to ’we are all in this together’, ’for hardworking people’, ’one nation’ and ’shared prosperity’.”
