Scholarship in Foucauldian governmentality has reemerged as a critical area of contemporary political discourse and has had a pronounced effect on neoliberal and postneoliberal research in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Perhaps the most versatile postneoliberal critic is Simon Springer, who has offered dynamic accounts of neoliberalism and its decline via a Foucauldian method. While Springer’s research is novel, I believe it is not a rigorous Foucauldian account of neoliberalism and its future.
