On April 24, 2013, the founding editors of the new left journal Soundings launched The Kilburn Manifesto, a challenge to ‘neoliberal victory’ in London. A response to the Global Financial Crisis, the manifesto was a call to action - a call for the left to disrupt the ubiquity of the status quo and to invent an alternative. In the wake the recent passing of Doreen Massey, one of the founding editors, we re-publish one of the classic articles that came as part of this movement - Massey’s meditation on the way in which the cant of neoliberalism has cemented the economic paradigm.
