Culture under neoliberalism / neoliberal culture: Studies from the Pacific Rim (Journal articles, 11/15/13)

Thursday, July 11, 2013 - 3:12am
Sites: A Journal of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies

Over the past thirty years, it has increasingly become understood in cultural theory that neoliberalism -- the extension of free market principles and corporate structures into the wider social and cultural spheres -- has become a shaping paradigm of our daily lives. Neoliberal tenets include the model of persons as rational economic actors advancing their own interests under the banner of self-determination and choice; the elevation of enterprise along with prudent risk management; the "freeing" of capital from state control into corporate ownership; and the shifting of social responsibility from state agencies to kinship-based forms of care.
