Pages 24

In this conclusion we draw upon the various analyses of fraud in this book to establish a more coherent and schematic approach to locating fraud in the moral economy of neoliberalism. Before we turn to addressing some of the substantive aspects of the relationship between moral economy, fraud and neoliberalism, we offer some comments that develop our approach to ‘neoliberalism’ set out in the introduction to this book. Building on this approach, the chapter then outlines how a particular moral economy supports the neoliberal project generally and the production of ‘fraud’ specifically.
