This approach has tended to fire the imagination of geographers because of its focus on the uneven geographical development of neo-liberalization and on the local remaking of the neo-liberal project. In particular, the emphasis has been on understanding how ‘the origins of neoliberalism cannot be reduced to the mere exporting of policies and programs from the US “diffusion centres” of New York and Washington’ (Ward & England, 2007: 6).
