Marketization is pervasive.. this paper delves into how Foucault helps to understand marketization

What is it about?

The start as well as the finish of this paper owes a big 'thank-you' to Himadri Roy Chaudhuri, the editor of the special issue, who was persistent that the paper got done. He was helpful and diligent in the review and the copy-editing process. The concepts from French theorist Michel Foucault help to place the processes and consequences of marketization in a frame that deepens the political and social understanding of this phenomenon.

Why is it important?

The bringing in of the Foucauldian angle helps to open new directions to study neoliberalism, marketization, political economy and of course business and consumption spheres.
