What counts as “economic?” The answer to this question has become awfully unclear. As capitalist markets expand, even the most personal, emotional, and moral decisions that people make in their lives may be portrayed as economically driven. This course will take on analyzing relationships between capitalist markets, monetary interests, and profit-making on the one hand, and intimacy, emotions, and morality on the other hand. We will look at the historical expansion of the free-market logic into new life domains and discuss its consequences for issues such as social inequalities, social solidarity, gender relations, and local and global politics.
