Steve Lambert in The Discourses of Capitalism: Everyday Economists and the Production of Common Sense

Steve Lambert, "Capitalism Works for Me! True/False

Steve Lambert’s (MFA 2006) street art installation – “Capitalism Works For Me! True/False” — has made its way into The Discourses of Capitalism: Everyday Economists and the Production of Common Sense. The authors examined the discourses of capitalism taken up by people in their responses to ”Capitalism Works For Me! True/False,” pouring through raw video interviews Steve recorded at Times Square, London, Cedar Rapids, and Boston.  The authors used that source material to consider several key questions, including: 

How do everyday people view and make sense of capitalism and its role in their work and personal lives?

What are the discourses they use in their common-sense understandings of the economy to defend or reject capitalism as a system?

The Discourses of Capitalism: Everyday Economists and the Production of Common Sense looks at how dominant discourses in social circulation operate to co-construct and support capitalism, and the accompanying counter-discourses that critique it.
