Building Dignified Worlds

The chapter argues that the ‘market model’ that social movements oppose is rarely performed in day-to-day life. Rather, existing markets are better conceptualised as dynamic social networks open to intervention and occupation by social movements. I draw on Adam Smith’s classical political economic thought along with more recent scholarship in the field of actor network theory to develop this conceptualisation.

Keywords:   Adam Smith, actor network theory, market rationality, social movements, political economy
