American Military Contractors and the Neoliberal Way of War

Ettinger, AARON 03 October 2013 (has links)
American Military Contractors and the Neoliberal Way of War explores the historical patterns of modern military contracting and its place in the political economy of American war. During the post-September 11 wars, contractors have played a prominent role, comprising over half the US total force. While the participation of contractors in major US contingency operations is not new, the scale and scope of contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan is without precedent. The study emerges from a puzzling historical development: during the Vietnam War, contractors constituted about 10 percent of the US footprint. In Iraq and Afghanistan, the figure climbs to 53 percent. What accounts for this change? The answer turns on one ideational and one institutional condition. Institutionally, the transition began with the US military’s shift from a mixed volunteer and draftee force to the All-Volunteer Force in 1973. Doing so removed personnel procurement from a statist framework through the introduction of the logic of the labour market. This institutional change was a necessary precondition for the gradual incursion of neoliberal market logic into military personnel policy. A series of reforms in subsequent decades initiated path dependent processes of military neoliberalization that eventually yielded the troop-contractor ratios of the post-September 11 wars. The dissertation develops a theoretical framework drawn from traditions in critical International Political Economy that conceptualizes five decades of uneven neoliberalization in the Department of Defense. Empirically, it undertakes a comparative study of US contracting practices during the Vietnam and post-September 11 wars, tracing gradual institutional change in the Department of Defense from the 1970s to the present. / Thesis (Ph.D, Political Studies) -- Queen's University, 2013-09-30 14:31:32.216

The dominance of neoliberal ideology in public schooling and possibilities for reconstructing the common good in education

Macris, Vicki 11 1900 (has links)
Neoliberal ideology has transformed education into a market model as competition, deregulation, stratification and the spread of market discourse and market ideology seep into public educational institutions, causing potentially negative social consequences and threatening their democratic nature. This study examines the processes by which neoliberalism seeks to reframe the context of public education by promoting market-based principles and values through the implementation of educational policies and reforms; principles and values that have become so firmly embedded in the vision of education, they subsequently operate as mechanisms for upholding and reproducing the asymmetrical power relations in society. / Theoretical, Cultural and International Studies in Education

How has neoliberalism influenced US foreign politics?

Lösche, Max January 2009 (has links)
<p>This essay discusses the impact of neoliberalism on the US American foreign politics. It addresses the possible strategy of America on a global scale, always focusing on neoliberal forces in America that are behind the official political decisions that are made in Washington. The essay also discusses the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Here, there is more than what the eye can see, or rather what the public is meant to see. Strong economic powers influence the war in the Middle East and try to bring a new world order upon the region, by implanting democracy, neoliberalism and absolute market openness. This discussion is done through a comparison of various sources, including books and scientific articles, dealing with geography, economy and politics. The outcome of this essay includes worrying facts about the future of globalism, neoliberalism and democracy, as power more and more shifts towards private corporations and banks, away from democratic state apparatus.</p>

A Reassessment of Deindustrialization and the Case of Atlantic Steel

Lawrence, Timothy T 11 May 2013 (has links)
This thesis seeks to understand the causal factors of deindustrialization in the steel industry during the late twentieth century and uses the former Atlantic Steel Company mill in Atlanta, Georgia as a case study. Using company records and secondary sources from a variety of social science disciplines, I explore the roles of neoliberalism, government foreign and domestic policies, and the world economic crisis of 1973 to reassess contemporary understanding of the concept of deindustrialization.

The Political and Economic Analysis of Industrial Policies in Ireland

Huang, Ching-yi 29 June 2010 (has links)
Ireland joined the European Union (EU) in 1973 that was the most significant decision for the national development. The EU is highly supported by Ireland whose success in the 1990s was resulted from not only the correct industrial policies of the government but also the benefits from the aid of funds and the market of the EU. The regional peace in Northern Ireland provides an environment of stable development for Ireland. Ireland is the most globalized country where the Government adopts open and liberal developing strategies of Neoliberalism and considers itself to be the door of the EU. Moreover, the government attracts foreign capital aggressively, developes software industries and focuses on Research & Development for upgrading of the industries. Ireland was known as the ¡§Celtic Tiger¡¨ due to the remarkable economic growth. However, the financial crisis of 2008 impacted the Irish economy heavily. Therefore, Ireland became the first country to announce the recession in the EU. This study focuses on analyzing the crisis and the fragility of Irish industries with the perspective of Neoliberalism. The governmental policies overcoming the crisis in the case of sofeware industry will be furthermore analyzed.

The dominance of neoliberal ideology in public schooling and possibilities for reconstructing the common good in education

In today’s neoliberal climate, a burgeoning health consciousness pervades American society. Health and fitness discourses are increasingly framed through neoliberal ideologies, contributing to the rise of “healthism”. This theory prescribes that health should be taken up as an individual responsibility and moral obligation. Healthism, coupled with societal pressure to adhere to certain cultural bodily ideals, propels individuals to take ownership of their health and well-being. More specifically, Americans are encouraged to strive towards cultivating a “healthy” body, which is a fit body, because the physical body has come to symbolize health and morality. With the phenomenal growth of the health and fitness industry, gyms have become an increasingly popular venues where individuals go to address their health and fitness needs. However, class status plays a critical role in Americans’ capacity to pursue health-promoting knowledge and resources. Structural barriers related to economic inequalities alienate individuals of low-socioeconomic status from mainstream health practices, including gym participation. The current project draws upon ethnographic fieldwork in a commercial gym in the Boston, Massachusetts area. Through a qualitative investigation of Planet Fitness, I seek to contribute to the empirical base of knowledge surrounding gyms, specifically, and health and fitness discourses, at large. Planet Fitness, a hugely successful gym franchise across the United States, has developed a unique brand that recognizes the various economic and social barriers that prevent and discourage gym participation. Findings reveal that by dramatically lowering the price of memberships, developing an inclusive environment, called the “Judgment Free Zone”, and offering the convenience of nearly 700 locations nationwide, Planet Fitness makes health and wellness more affordable and accessible for Americans. / Thesis (Master, Sociology) -- Queen's University, 2014-02-03 09:31:17.172
