  • Description

    We live in an age in which the dominant forms of capitalist political economy are undergoing major transformations. The goal of the editors of Millennial Capitalism and the Culture of Neoliberalism is to generate an empirically grounded discussion that posits millennial capitalism as a historical formation. Premised on the fact that there is more to global capitalism than economics, the volume raises urgent questions regarding human understanding and social action.

    From the perspectives of disciplines ranging from anthropology to public policy, the contributors explore how the triumph of the “free market” has obscured rising tides of violence and cultures of exclusion and how consumption has overtaken production as the predominant global economic theme. Considering both the material and cultural dimensions of the Age of Millennial Capitalism, they examine such topics as the proliferation of economies aimed at the accumulation of wealth without work—epitomized by lotteries and get rich schemes—and how neoliberal capitalism encourages a world of invisible class distinctions, environmental catastrophes, moral panics, social impossibilities, bitter generational antagonisms, gender conflicts, and heightened flows of people and value across both space and time. As a whole, the volume considers the world-at-large at a particularly momentous historical time—a time when the social sciences and humanities are in danger of ceding intellectual initiative to the masters of the market and the media.

    In addition to its interdisciplinary essays, Millennial Capitalism and the Culture of Neoliberalism—the third installment of the journal Public Culture’s “Millennial Quartet”—features a number of striking photographs. The book will interest anthropologists, political geographers, economists, sociologists, and political theorists alike.
