520    The essays in this volume seek to participate in the 
       current, and growing, debate concerning the intersections 
       of fictional and economic discourses. They offer a 
       productive complement to approaches that consider the 
       study of the economy to be fundamental to literary studies,
       by emphasising how literary thought can throw light on the
       extent to which the economy is itself a fiction. All 
       contributors come from the field ofliterary studies, and 
       all show an awareness of the rhetorical and narrative 
       articulations of the economy, addressing the fictional 
       basis of the economy as we know it, andthe manner in which
       meaning is articulated according (but also counter) to the
       principles at work inthese economic fictions. The 
       discussion developed throughout the collection, however, 
       extends beyondliterary texts to films, philosophical works
       and historical and legal discourses, all of which areshown
       to be permeated bythe imaginary make-up of the economy
