Schlaudt, Oliver: Die politischen Zahlen
Über Quantifizierung im Neoliberalismus
GDP, economic growth indicators, performance indicators, rankings: we´re continually surrounded by “political figures”, whenever we watch the news or peruse a newspaper. Yet hardly anyone sees through the workings of the enormously productive machinery generating these figures which rule our everyday life. This book presents the fundamentals of this mechanism, determined by preliminary decisions issued by politics, doubtful suppositions, and, sometimes, mere absurdities, clearly and step by step. It shows how a society, by putting its faith in figures, constantly nurtures the illusory conviction that politics are essentially superfluous, as decisions are being determined by facts anyway, and last questions being sufficiently answered by market forces.
