Abstract

This article discusses how young people are one of the groups most affected by neoliberalism. This is not because of a wealth transfer from young to old, or a neglect of the interests of the young simply because they don’t vote: it is part of a strategic restructuring of how our economy and society work in favour of capital, which focuses its efforts on the weakest points of resistance – which include the economy’s newest and most vulnerable entrants. An inter-generational alliance across is therefore the best hope for securing the future of the generation who have grown up under the restraint of neoliberalism.
