This article explores the dynamic discursive interactions between two keenly related concepts, globalization and neoliberalism. Though largely synonymous in the social imaginary, in fact, these ideas are different and analytically distinct. They need unpacking. The notion that both globalization and neoliberalism are empirically verified social realities must be advanced. What’s more as they affect the global-local social relation, varying manifestations such as gentrification, the global emergence of schools of choice (charter schools), and the economic and geographic dislocations of subordinate populations become evident. Relying on empirical studies and everyday lived cultural experience in the rebuilding of the city of New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina, I finally examine the implications for a Global Latino education and pedagogy.
