Economic Crisis, the Coercive Neoliberal State, and Popular Contestations

            Across various geographical regions, the state’s response to fiscal crisis is to impose austerity on working and middle classes and further privatize public goods, expanding opportunities for speculative investment. In the USA this strategy is particularly apparent in cities where local governments are privatizing public infrastructure and institutions, such as bridges and schools, cutting public sector workers’ wages and social benefits, and imposing budget cuts and increased user fees for public services. This is an acceleration of neoliberal strategies that have reshaped US cities over the past two decades and are, in various ways, globalized. In the USA, neoliberalism is intertwined with the cultural and structural logics of race,  producing new forms of urban marginalization and exclusion along dimensions of race, class, and ethnicity. Education policies and cultural politics are constitutive of these dynamics and the inequalities and exclusions they generate. The crisis is an opportunity to unlock public education as a vast new investment sector, largely at the expense of working class and marginalized communities and unionized public education workers.

Faced with multiple crises and to implement its agenda, the state increasingly relies on coercion alongside the cultural politics of consent. In the USA, education policies are key aspects of coercive urban governance. They intensify economic and spatial exclusion and disenfranchisement of low-income African American communities in particular. They are also the focus of intense contestation and resistance. In this lecture, Pauline Lipman discusses the dialectic of economic crisis, coercive neoliberal governance and popular resistance.
