What Women Should Know About Economic Fundamentalism

  • Marjorie Griffin Cohen Simon Fraser University

Abstract

This paper argues that the policies implicit in economic fundamentalism are not inevitable because of the logic of capitalism, but are policies that have been actively promoted by the corporate sector in its own interests. The ideology of economic fundamentalism presents a rigid conditioning framework which affects economic and other public policies which have been important for women's equality and consequently, has undermined feminist successes in Canada.
