Unlike other forms of economic organization, Polanyi asserted, the only signals a market economy can perceive are those of price. ”27 Such a market cannot take into account values like the quality of human interaction, culture, or the desire for a healthy environment. This key point about the centrality of price is important for understanding the nature of an alternative market such as fair trade. As the entire society was subordinated to the demands of capital, Polanyi wrote, the market would become disembedded from social relations, setting in motion a process that would systematically replace such relations of reciprocity and redistribution with interactions based solely on economic logic.

Neither under tribal, nor feudal, nor mercantile conditions was there, as we have shown, a separate economic system in society. Nineteenth-century society, in which economic activity was isolated and imputed to a distinctive economic motive, was, indeed, a singular departure. Such an institutional pattern could not function unless society was somehow subordinated to its requirements. ”26 As the English commons were enclosed—privatized—peasants were A Movement or a Market? 19 forced off the land into cities and obliged to sell their labor power, and markets developed for two essential inputs of industry: land and labor.

In the end, the fairtrade market was created so that the conventional market would become more fair. ”57 While aiming to reconcile these disparate views, Pruijn supports those who (in Renard’s words) “aim to make all exchanges fair”—essentially the market-reform stance. Yet the momentum in the fair-trade movement (certainly in the United States) seems to be away from even moderate critiques of market capitalism. In the attempt to reach and enlist consumers, a deradicalization of at least the public face of fair trade—the certifiers— has taken place.
