Holding the market. That is playing with economy to understand how defend ourselves - Recently, new forms of economic cooperations based on self-organization, consumer empowerment and participation are emerging: fair trade, open source software, micro-credit, critical consumption, and many others. This paper is twofolded; first, we argue that such experiences constitute a radical change in how the market shapes the socio-economic relations and the power equilibrium in the market. Second, we believe that the economic theory lies far behind a whole comprehension of these facts; while it is trying to explain them with the standard toolbox of economists, the economic theory misses to see that such experiences are born from a critics of the neo-liberal globalization, and might be the pillars on which to build a sustainable alternative model.
