Neoliberalism and Everyday Life

Reviews

Joining the chorus of Canadian voices offering alternative economic prescriptions and critiques in the wake of the 2008 economic crisis, a group notably populated by James Laxer, Sam Gindin, Jim Stanford, et al., the contributors to Neoliberalism and Everyday Life offer one of the more sweeping and varied contributions to date.

With a particular focus on gender issues and the myriad community-level ramifications stemming from neoliberalism, the books largely eschews in-depth economicanalysis in favour of the accessibility of a broader social appraisal. Those with concern for, or involvement with, current debates surrounding Canadian health care should take a particular interest in Susan Braedley’s “‘Accidental’ Health Care: Masculinity and Neoliberalism at Work”.
