We gather this distinguished interdisciplinary panel to reconsider the role of government in economic life. Now is an opportune time: Policymakers in Washington, Brussels, and elsewhere are launching bold new experiments with industrial policy. The tenets of the “Washington Consensus” are fast falling out of favor both politically and ideologically. Scholars and journalists are observing the decline of “neoliberal globalization” as well as a “homecoming” to domestic industry and reshoring of supply chains. Activists, workers, and citizens are clamoring for greater government action in securing a prosperous, sustainable, and fair future. The conversation will reflect on what neoliberalism statecraft has precisely meant in recent decades and whether we are experiencing meaningful departures from that paradigm. We will discuss the way neoliberalism, as an ideology and practice, shaped how researchers and policymakers think and act, and what might be progressive, as well as less propitious, new directions.
