abstract
"The Great Recession was the largest crisis of capitalism since the Great Depression and the largest crisis in neoliberalism to date, sending shockwaves throughout the global economy. States scrambled to right the sinking capitalist ship in order to maintain high levels of accumulation. In Canada, as in so many other countries, the state introduced austerity measures aimed at organized labour and the broader working class. This volume explores the political economy of The Great Recession in Canada, and focuses on how labour has responded to the crisis, neoliberalism, and austerity measures."--Publisher's website.
