The Care Crisis: What Caused It and How Can We End It?
What is care and who is paying for it? In her new book, The Care Crisis, Emma Dowling charts the multi-faceted nature of care in the modern world, from the mantras of self-care and what they tell us about our anxieties, to the state of the social care system. She examines the relations of power that play profitability and care off in against one another in a myriad of ways, exposing the devastating impact of financialisation and austerity. In this podcast she discusses care in its many forms with Rachel Holmes, before a reading from the book by Amelia Horgan.
