What’s Politics #7 - Neoliberalism and the Commodification of Human Needs

What's Politics is a series where we delve into political concepts, ideas, and questions and explore how they impact all of us. 

If you’ve listened to this show over the past couple of years, you definitely would’ve heard us say “the past 4 decades of neoliberalism” numerous times over various topics and questions to try and understand various political-economic problems of today. But what is so significant about the past four decades? What is neoliberalism? How did it change the world? And why is it the reason you can’t afford to buy a house?
