This chapter scrutinises the performance of the selected nation states and the regime types in relation to autonomy and relational harms. The harms included in this chapter are poverty, child poverty, financial insecurity, long working hours, youth unemployment and social isolation. The chapter demonstrates the facets of specific societies that appear to militate against or serve to exacerbate the production of these harms – in particular, the extent to which societies fetter the extraction of surplus value, therefore willing to regulate the capital–labour relation and provide support for those who are excluded from paid work.

Keywords:   poverty, financial insecurity, long working hours, youth unemployment, social isolation
