Michael McCarthy

McCarthy is an assistant professor of sociology at Marquette University with research interests that lie at the intersection of political sociology, work, finance and social policy. His book, “Dismantling Solidarity: Capitalist Politics and American Pensions since the New Deal,” published with Cornell University Press, explores the sociological causes of the current crisis in retirement. It makes contributions to the theories of the state and policy-making and was awarded the Paul Sweezy Book Award and an honorable mention for Labor and Labor Movements Distinguished Book Award, both through the American Sociological Association. His second book, under contract with Verso Books, explores how finance can be mobilized in ways that serve the social and environmental good both in the workplace and outside of it. It is tentatively titled “The Master’s Tools: Using Finance Against Capital.”
