A Second Petit Digest

Political theorist Nancy Fraser here at The Guardian on how feminism is complicit in the reign of neo-liberal policies and institutions.

Economist Joseph Stiglitz here at The New York Times on choosing political economic inequality and the consequences thereof.

Both pieces, it seems to me, underscore the priority of democracy. While polities face options, they do so in ways that privilege those individuals and groups who already enjoy resource asymmetries. Hence our 'choices' hardly have been democratic in any plausible sense.
