Economy Culture and Society: A Sociological Critique of Neo-Liberalism

Barry Smart (Author)

Economic factors and processes are at the heart of contemporary social and cultural life and this book is designed to refocus social theorizing to reflect that fact. The author re-interprets the work of classical theorists and, in the context of the move towards social regulation and protection in the 19th and early 20th centuries, he discusses more recent transformations in capitalist economic life that have led to greater flexibility, forms of disorganization, and a neo-liberal regeneration of the market economy. As our lives have become subject to a process of commodification, market forces have assumed an increasing prominence, and the imbalance in resources between private and public sectors has been aggravated. This illuminating text addresses these central concerns, drawing on the work of key social and economic thinkers.

Contents: 1. Sociological reason and economic life. 2. No alternative? Capitalist economic life and the closing of the political universe. 3. Cultures of production and consumption. 4. Without regard for persons: the market economy. 5. Affluence and squalor: the private and public sectors. 6. Conclusion: new economic conditions and their social and political consequences. References. Index.
