Capitalism (as we knew it)

« Separated by a decade of thinking, researching, and living, these two volumes are intricately interconnected and yet very different. In The End of Capitalism, J. K. Gibson-Graham was the quintessential “theory slut,” happily and carelessly thinking around, playing with “serious” and consequential subjects like political economy, loving the theory she was with, offering ebullient arguments and heady claims about representations of capitalism and their politically constraining performativity. We spoke to our readers as somewhat wayward feminists who seemed to relish their positioning as mildly outrageous, quirkily funny, and ambiguously gendered. It might come as a shock, then, that A Postcapitalist Politics has a completely different feel; it reads like a wholesome, even earnest, treatise on how to do economy differently. The authorial stance is open, exposed, even vulnerable, entirely different from the shimmering armor of the earlier book (and much less fun, we fear). In writing that book we felt a perhaps unwarranted confidence, conferred by our lengthy training in political economy, that no one could say things about capitalism that we hadn’t heard before and didn’t have a response to. This book offers us no such safe havens.

What, apart from menopause and inevitable aging, has contributed to this shift in stance and affect? Perhaps it has been our awakening to the different kinds of politics that are possible, along with an enhanced ability to hear as well as speak. » (A Postcapitalist Politics, p. xi)

Deze pragmatische houding is niet zozeer een stijlkwestie, maar een politieke overtuiging

De uitkomst van algoritmische bestuurlijkheid en hypernudge is immers een vorm van normativiteit die voortdurend wordt afgedwongen door ons eigen gedrag, en daardoor elke vorm van ongehoorzaamheid onmogelijk maakt.
