Tony Blairís days as prime minister are numbered. Almost certainly, Gordon Brown will replace him. Despite their intense personal rivalry, they have been the key architects of New Labourís neo-liberal policies. So, how different would a Brown government be? HANNAH SELL writes.
Since the early 1980s, world capitalism has followed a trajectory based on globalisation and neo-liberal policies.
