Connections Between the Social Protection System, Taxation, and Financialization

  • 457 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter scrutinizes the process of the subjection of social policy to the logic of financialization as led by the social-developmentalist State, providing an empirical characterization of how financialization impacts social policy and the threat it poses to the social protection system of the 1988 Constitution. The various dynamics of the financialization process are compared, across key sectors of social policy such as healthcare, pensions, and higher education.
