Sell to Subvert: How Market-Critical Consumer-Producer Communities Cope With Market Success

In this abstract we present an interpretive study of the “Premium Cola community” of anti-market activists that successfully markets a cola with moral ambitions. As it grows, the community repeatedly encounters ideological dilemmas that it addresses with specific framing practices. We illuminate how successful consumer-producer communities can manage moral growth.
