Ch. 3 Language

Cite Gibson-Graham on how the "capitalocentric" discourse about the commons, even among Marxists, has left little cultural and intellectual space for developing a "world of economic difference," which includes noncapitalist as well as capitalist class processes, noncommodity production and nonmarket exchange.

Gibson-Graham also admit that it is a hard task to leave behind capitalism, "a creature larger than life and twice as exciting, and enter into a starveling's embrace." The basic problem is "an insufficency of representatiuons of noncapitalism," as described in Roelvink, St. Martin and Gibson Graham, editors, Making Other Worlds Possible: Performing Diverse Economies (University of Minnesota Press, 2015).
