By J. K. Gibson-Graham
A Postcapitalist Politics unearths a prolific panorama of monetary diversity—one that isn't completely or predominantly capitalist—and examines the demanding situations and successes of different monetary interventions. Gibson-Graham assemble political economic system, feminist poststructuralism, and financial activism to foreground the moral judgements, rather than structural imperatives, that build financial “development” pathways. Marshalling empirical proof from neighborhood fiscal initiatives and motion learn within the usa, Australia, and Asia, they produce a particular political imaginary with 3 intersecting moments: a politics of language, of the topic, and of collective motion. within the face of a nearly common feel of hand over to capitalist globalization, this booklet demonstrates that postcapitalist matters, economies, and groups may be fostered. The authors describe a politics of threat which may construct various economies in position and over area. They urge us to confront the forces that stand within the approach of monetary experimentation and to discover other ways of relocating from conception to motion.
J. ok. Gibson-Graham is the pen identify of Katherine Gibson and Julie Graham, feminist monetary geographers who paintings, respectively, on the Australian nationwide college in Canberra and the college of Massachusetts Amherst.
