Abstract

Chapter Ten, by Neil Davidson, therefore examines the extent to which devolved Scottish governments, particularly the present SNP administration, have been able to go beyond the boundaries of neoliberal orthodoxy. He argues that where this has occurred it is a function of the peculiarities of party competition in Holyrood, rather than representing a fundamental disavowal of the existing order. Finally, he suggests that a genuine alternative to neoliberalism will only emerge, in Scotland or elsewhere, on the basis of a politics which takes the interests of the working class as seriously as neoliberalism has those of the capitalist class.
