Do Economists Make Markets?
On the Performativity of Economics
Edited by Donald MacKenzie, Fabian Muniesa & Lucia Siu

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Do Economists Make Markets? contains a number of truly excellent and thought-provoking studies, including the most important statement in English on economic performativity by the theory's inventor, Michel Callon."--Richard Swedberg, Cornell University

"This is an absolutely terrific volume. Built on a rich and varied set of empirical studies of how economic technologies 'perform the world,' Do Economists Make Markets? establishes the 'science studies' approach to markets as a valid alternative, and in some cases as a complement, to more conventional approaches in economic sociology. It breathes new life into the study of economics by offering a stimulating account of the complex ways in which economists, economic machines, and society co-constitute one another."--Marion Fourcade, University of California, Berkeley
