Virtue Hoarders
The Case against the Professional Managerial Class

Catherine Liu
A denunciation of the credentialed elite class that serves capitalism while insisting on its own progressive heroism
Author Catherine Liu shows how Professional Managerial Class (PMC) elite workers who labor in a world of performative identity and virtue signaling stand in the way of social justice and economic redistribution. Virtue Hoarders is an unapologetically polemical call to reject making a virtue out of taste and consumption habits.
