Punishing the Poor. The Neoliberal Government of Social Insecurity
âPunishing the Poor. The Neoliberal Government of Social Insecurityâ by Loic Wacquant, 2009,
211 pages, a John Hope Franklin book
Public goods and social capital are missing in some American ghettos so âpublic institutions act as negative social capital and ensure that ghetto-persons cannot escape their dependent and marginalized situation.â
Public goods and services are necessary so everyone feels included in the modern project and the poor do not only see the public authority as negative, violent and oppressive.
Head Start, Meals on Wheels, WIC food assistance, the National Institute for Health, Legal Aid and PBS should be strengthened and not cut to the bone. Public spirit does not come from nowhere.
