Abstract

Anna Killick draws on an ethnographic study with residents of an English city in the two years following the referendum to explore what people think about ‘the economy’. She finds that low-income residents are less interested in and more negative about the phenomenon of the economy compared with high income residents. However, their reasoning is based on post-2008 economic conditions, and any lack of interest in the economy may be more calculative and temporary than is often assumed.
