Die Frage, welche Theorie-Spiegel gleichsam diagnosetauglich sind, stellte sich verschärft in einer Zeit, in der Ideologen in der islamischen Welt die antisemitische »Holocaust«-Keule schwingen und im Westen nicht wenige Politiker, Leserbriefschreiber und Medienschaffende sich als gleich- sam natürliche Huntingtonianer outen, um ihrem stillen, aber landläufigen Rassis- mus

Positive Aging in an Age of Neo-liberalism Old Wine in New Bottles? Marvin Formosa The discourse of positive aging has become the central plank upon which international and national aging policies are constructed. Moreover, an increasing number of popular writers are advocating positive aging as a means to age actively, successively, and productively.

Liberalism versus Terrorism: Warfare, Crime Control, and the United States after 11 September THOMAS M.

APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM – NEO-LIBERALISM IN LATIN AMERICA The end of the 1980s in Latin America was marked by a type of neo-liberalism that was the result of a radical transformation of the structures of capitalism; one that fractured the basis of the interventionist and benefactor state. This trend had already begun by the end of the 1970s when the global recession gradually con- cluded a debt-financed period of “apparent

rent-seeking landscapes through the lenses of housing and urban policies, which actively create the material, symbolic and normative conditions for the capture of lived territories by finance. I have not mentioned the word “neo-liberalism” so far, but now it is time to name it: Yes, I am talking about neo-liberalism, which among its discourses includes a big lie: “State get out of the business and let the market do what is needed!” Yet in truth states, through their public policies, have actively created and reproduced all of the conditions for financial
