How Do Social Capital-Driven Consumption Communities Conceal Their Economic Interests?

This multi-method interpretive study explores the intersection of social and economic capital production in consumption communities. Building on Bourdieu, it reveals how social capital-driven communities employ four nuanced strategies of concealing their economic interests. Engaging these strategies allows communities for incorporating economic activities under the primacy of social capital production.
