Neoliberalism and the Australian Healthcare System (Factory)
Horton, Eleanor S. (2007) Neoliberalism and the Australian Healthcare System (Factory). In 2007 Conference of the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia, 6-9 December 2007, Wellington, New Zealand.
This paper will examine the interrelationship between categorising the neo-liberal perspective and the term 'consumer.' My explicit concern is the likely intrusion of the neo-liberal mindset onto what is essentially the 'social nature of identity' (Billington, Hockey & Strawbridge 1998, p. 56). By locating the discourse of consumerism within the broader political framework, I am able to examine the neoliberalist view and its positioning of marginalised groups with the aim of attempting to focus attention to the potentially negative consequences of the consumer label.
