Towards a Bourdieusian economics of leisure

Trigg, Andrew B. (2011). Towards a Bourdieusian economics of leisure. In: Cameron, Samuel ed. Handbook on the Economics of Leisure. Cheltenham: Edward Elgar, pp. 38–51.



About the book:
Surprisingly, the field of leisure economics is not, thus far, a particularly integrated or coherent one. In this volume a wide ranging body of international scholars get to grips with this issue, taking in the traditional income/leisure choice model of textbook microeconomics and Becker’s allocation of time model along the way. Contributions from further afield by Veblen, Sctivosky and Bourdieu feature prominently. A range of applied empirical studies are brought to bear on these various approaches.
