financialization/1 % bleg
I teach a course on organizations, work and the economy for undergraduates. It is aimed at lower division students. I want to do one or two lectures on “fincialization,” the growth of jobs in finance, the shift in wealth, and so forth. Alternatively, one could teach a lecture or two on the topic of “the 1%.”
My issue is that there don’t seem to be many good essays on this topic aimed at undergraduates. I want an essay that is nuts and bolts, not a think piece. Something like a meaty Contexts piece with some strong charts and graphs on income inequality in the age of financialization.
