I've re-instated the title, and added some verbs. What do you think?--Neil 16:35, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Can we frame the market emphasis on exchange over trade in some way? We called this a distributive market as a critique of normalised competition that dominates a perception of markets and economics. I'm not sure our motives really come across. Can we collect that in some way that communicates/presents/asks whether we have forgotten that markets are instruments, supposed to work for us, not vice versa...? What is the value of a market if it makes its subjects behave in a way they don't want to...--Trevor 12:55, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
A proposed change ...
It sounds very good, but I think we should also stress the active and individual qualities of the stalls. See below and change it if you agree.
Markets are good at convening and distributing resources.
Based on the model of the ancient bazaar, Critical Practice will convene a rich, varied and vibrant Market of Ideas in which artists, anthropologists, economists and others provide 'stalls' and exchange their knowledge with the milling crowd.
Not totally convinced by provide. Perhaps 'contribute'? 'supply'? Or 'animate'?
