While such sentiments, especially in the developing world are not new, the current conjuncture may weaken the case for neoliberalism to the point that critics can finally be heard. This takes us back to the work of Keynes, whose ideas are ever more relevant as we seek to understand the economic challenges of the 21st century. It is obviously too early to say whether current circumstances will leave a lasting intellectual imprint on the economics profession.
