First as Tragedy, Then as Farce: The Double Death of Neoliberalism and the Idea of Communism

This event was recorded on 25 November 2009 in Old Theatre, Old Building, The London School of Economics and Political Science

Slavoj Zizek argues that the neoliberalism died twice: first as a political doctrine in the tragedy of the attacks of 9/11; then its farcical collapse as an economic theory when the meltdown at the end of 2008 brought an end to the utopia of global market capitalism. Has this crisis now offered a vital opening for the left to seize the reins of politics and the state?
