    Re: The Constant Consumer

    You’re on to something and a followup article would probably be a good idea.

    John Weeks hit on this in his book “Economics of the 1%” where he dissected how neoliberalism ideology has used “consumer” and “taxpayer” to replace “citizen”.

      Yeah, I definitely think the “Constant Consumer” subject matter is worth more than one essay and there was a lot I wanted to get into that I had to leave out. I’ll have to check out the Weeks book – I hadn’t actually heard of it but it sounds really close to what I was discussing so it would probably be helpful for further inquiry. Thanks for the recommendation.
