    Tony provides a pretty withering critique of the usage of the term ‘neo-liberalism’ and why it doesn’t hold up. It’s capitalism. It’s capitalist policy-makers reacting logically to the crisis of capitalism that came with the end of the long postwar boom. This term is especially absurd in NZ, where National increases social welfare benefits, raises the minimum wage, maintains 65 as the retirement age, votes to substantially curtail zero-hours contracts, etc etc.
