Oleg Komlik — Pierre Bourdieu: Economism is a form of ethnocentrism

Economic liberalism, typified by "economism," is not only an ideology based on restrictive assumptions that are normative and prescriptive in addition to positive. It is also ethnocentric, being based on Western culturally dominant concepts and values, and in particular Anglo-American concepts and values that have been dominant post-WWII, and which economic liberals have insisted upon universalizing as "natural."
