In his much debated Adorno lectures in Frankfurt, Wolfgang Streeck exposes the roots of current financial, fiscal, and economic crises, describing them as the factor of the long neoliberal transformation of the postwar capitalism. He analyses the four decades long tension between democracy and capitalism and the resulting conflicts. He examines also the remodelling of the European state system and discusses the outlooks of the recovery of social and economic stability.
