  • Georg FranckEmail author

Abstract

The age of neoliberalism is an era of unleashed market forces, symptomized by the flourishing of vanity fairs. The unbound forces of capitalism are epitomized by what are now called the financial industries. The recent upsurge of vanity fairs takes shape in so-called celebrity culture. The question thus is: Are we facing a merely accidental correlation between financial industries and celebrity culture, or is there a common causality waiting to be identified?
