5 See for instance the following quotation: “Recognising the diversity of our existing economy provides grounds for some limited optimism about the possibility of significant economic change. The domination of our economies by capitalism is less than it might seem from prevailing discourses of the economy, and it must be possible to build alternatives alongside capitalist economic practices since many alternative forms are already thriving” [228f].

7 Elder-Vass [229] is aware of this: “Alternative appropriative practices can themselves be entangled in capitalist forms.”
