Back to the Dark Ages: Neoliberalism and The Decline of Labor and Education
Fitzner, Jennifer
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v14 n1 p57-73 Mar 2016
This paper addresses the convergence of inequality across social and economic dimensions in the United States. Chief among these are wealth accumulation, labor, and education. Specifically, I discuss the transference of wealth to the top of the income hierarchy, the automation and polarization of labor, and threats to public education. Additionally, I implicate neoliberalism in this multidimensional decline of social privileges, and I conclude with a glimpse into a dystopian future.
