Chapter 10 deals with the family policy of the OECD. International organizations like the OECD have come to play an increasingly important role in coordinating policy responses. While much of the OECD's advice may have contributed to the construction of a neoliberal world order, neoliberal solutions are not the only ones on offer; nor has neoliberalism managed to eliminate alternative, more egalitarian conceptions. Since the mid‐1990s, the discourses of some international organizations, including the OECD, have come to include elements of what might be called ‘inclusive liberalism’. This chapter focuses in this chapter on one policy area where the turn from neoliberalism is clearly evident — the OECD's generation and dissemination of a new family policy designed to meet the cluster of needs associated with the emergence of the adult earner family.

Keywords:   neo‐liberalism, adult earner family
