Abstract:

Nitasha Kaul argues that economic violence refers not only to violence caused for economic reasons, but also to violence caused by spurious economics. It is economic violence when people lose their jobs and livelihoods, when they witness massively divergent rewards for work and when they see an endless perpetuation of inequality around them. Such involuntary unemployment in the long run leads to social breakdown and community fragmentation.
