Inflation and the Making of Macroeconomic Policy in Australia
Trailer: The End of Laissez-Faire?

Trailer: Debtfare States

by Susanne Soederberg on October 13, 2015

Furthering the focus on academic trailers, this post features Susanne Soederberg’s Debtfare States and the Poverty Industry: Money, Distribution and Surplus Population.

The book proposes an original notion to what is called debtfarism to capture new configurations of class-based power that have extended and deepened the privatisation of the commons through monetised relations including the dependence on debt for workers under neoliberalism.
