There are various ways to understand neo-liberalism, including through the economy, politics, education, and globalization. In Neoliberalism: Perspectives, History and Criticisms, these topics will play a role in articulating the much-debated issue of the widening gaps between the rich and the poor, the left and the right, democracy and autocracy, and the educated and left behind.

The subsequent study uses data on neoliberal discourses and practices in higher educational institutions in Ghana in order to situate neoliberalism in a historical framework, as well as examine its perception in universities.

The closing chapter explores the possibility of transitioning from isolated monoliths of oligopolies into an ecosystem of a modular economy that is based on small or medium, competitive, community friendly and flexible enterprises.
