“Concerned Markets”

“Geiger et al. (2014) use the term ‘‘concerned markets’’ to refer to situations in which controversies set in motion an ongoing dynamic of criticisms and justifications during which actors tap into different explanations or principles of justice and thereby negotiate the construction of a shared world.”
(Blanchet  and Depeyre, 2016: 42)

Yeah, I suppose markets can move in and out of being concerned, as issues rise and fall (or are risen and are fallen/pushed etc etc.)  If only there were a dialectical way of thinking about issue life cycles that wasn’t…. well, that would be impolitic…
