Political Consumerism As Neoliberal Therapy: How an Actually Existing Neoliberalism Produces Entrepreneurial Passion

The authors examine the re-embedding of neoliberal discourses in market logics and histories and the governmental rationalities operating through political consumerism in a Slow Food network. They find that using therapeutic motifs Slow Food enacts an ideal of passionate enterprise that aligns communal identities and neoliberalism’s entrepreneurial skill building vision.
