President Pavlopoulos speaks against extreme neoliberalism

President Prokopis Pavlopoulos spoke in favour of the genuine liberal system of economic organization and against extreme neoliberalism during a speech at the University of Macedonia on Wednesday evening.

Pavlopoulos said the prevalence of extreme neoliberal notions has hit the welfare state and warned that the rupture of the social fabric has fostered neo-Nazi parties.

“The prevalence of extreme neoliberal economic views over genuinely liberal ones, especially in recent decades, has suffered strong blows against … representative democracy and the welfare state,” he said.
