The Financialisation of Social Reproduction in the Age of Neoliberalism: From Theory to Case Studies

Critical Reconstructions of Political Economy, Volume 4


Volume Editor:
Drawing upon comprehensive research across five countries, including case studies of housing, water, and health, comprehensive theoretical and empirical accounts are offered of the impact of financialisation on economic and social reproduction, alongside the corresponding material cultures of neoliberalism. Economic is understood as embedded within social reproduction, with neoliberalism, as the current stage of capitalism, fundamentally underpinned by, but not reducible to, the financialisation of everyday life. Considerable emphasis is placed upon the variegated outcomes attached to the neoliberalisation of social reproduction, as highlighted by the comparative study of economic and social provisioning across different countries and sectors.
