Under neoliberal dominance, more and more of the functions of collective life have been assigned or transferred to private corporate control, removed from the democratic accountability of the public sphere of our common life.

We have seen the result of those policies, from Katrina to the 2008 collapse of the minimally (and badly) regulated financial industry.
