With this contribution Herman Michiel answers to Andy Storeys “The Myth of Ordoliberalism“, which was recently published in this blog.
It was a good idea of Andy Storey to circulate his article “The Myths of Ordoliberalism” in broader circles than the academic ones . Ordoliberalism is one of those concepts by which the ‘ordinary’ left militant may be overawed, making her/him think to miss basic knowledge on the nature of the European Union. Andy’s paper is sufficiently readable by the broader public to temper such fear. And that it contradicts the opinion of a (also by me) widely lauded left critic as Wolfgang Streeck proves how important it is to continue our debates within the Left.
