Care is in crisis everywhere in the world. Neoliberal policies in wealthier states have cheapened the cost of care at home by privatizing care and importing increasing amounts of care labour. This action pushes the “care deficit” onto still less well-off societies. No solution to this problem can be found until care is sufficiently valued on a global level. In order for that to happen, the state as the “container” of care needs closer scrutiny.
