Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0415913799, Paperback)Consumerism has discovered gay liberation: Pride marches now commonly boast sponsorship by corporate entities such as Miller Lite and Absolute Vodka while designers Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger support the gay press with their advertising dollars. What are we to make of this trend? Homo Economics is a collection of 20 essays that analyze the myriad connections between money, consumerism, the market, and gay politics. Progressive in orientation and accessible in its writing, Homo Economics is provocative without being doctrinaire, challenging without being simple- minded. For anyone interested in politics, economics, or history this is an indispensable volume.
