The Interplay of Religious Discrimination/Segregation With Consumption and Production Activities

We investigate the interplay of religious discrimination/segregation with consumption and production activities. We uncover the duality of markets, i.e. markets help survive discrimination by enabling means of living, but also reproduce discrimination by precluding collective action and structural changes, through individualization and responsibilization. Theoretical and substantive contributions are also discussed.
