Neoliberalism Snark

Via Dan Drezner, I happened to come across this critique of neoliberalism.

Neoliberalism advocates unrestrained economic liberalization, complete privatization, and total marketization and it opposes any kind of interference or regulation by the state. Western countries, led by the United States, carry out their Neoliberal agendas under the guise of “globalization,” visiting catastrophic consequences upon Latin America, the Soviet Union, and Eastern Europe, and have also dragged themselves into the international financial crisis from they have yet to recover.

Question: am I reading a fashionable critique of globalization, or the mother of all authoritarian capital juggernauts? The answer is, of course, the latter.
