Summary
How was the sub-prime crisis performed? The concept of performativity has become increasingly prevalent in IPE in recent years and has provided for many intriguing and insightful studies into issues of finance in general and, among other topics, the sub-prime crisis in particular. However, in this paper we suggest that extant use of the concept tends to eschew a number of ethico-political questions that limits its potential. Once these questions are engaged, we suggest, there is space to appeal to broader understandings of that which might be said to be 'performed'. One significant yet underexplored area within the discussion of performative finance is emotion. Thus, we seek to explore the suggestion that 'emotion performs finance'. To that end, we consider the role of trauma, and specifically a traumatic narrative of the sub-prime crisis, in producing certain governmentalities of the financial subject. Through an analysis of the media discourse of the sub-prime crisis we argue that a traumatic narrative of fear and shame was able to perform a number of disciplinary moves including: 1) the individualisation of the crisis; 2) the cementing of the world-historical scale of the crisis; and 3) the existential legitimisation of state responses (in global co-ordination). Of course, like all discourses, this narrative is incomplete and by no means exhaustive of the range of factors involved in the performance of finance during this period. Therefore, drawing from the work of Judith Butler, we suggest ways that the trauma narrative might be subverted through satire, challenging the narrative at the point of enunciation
