In this chapter, the authors write, both separately and together, as part of the bringing together of, first, a broad interest in economy, finance, business and management, and, second, an established and ongoing interest in emergent methods, including ethnography, (auto)biography, and specifically organizational autoethnography. Organizational autoethnography allows for specific insights concerning the understanding of economy, finance, business and management. It takes into account the lives and biographies of individuals in organizations, their emotions, normative orientations. The economic, the financial, business and management are clearly much to do production, exchange, extent of material development and, in capitalist society, profit and financial returns, whether short- or long-term, but that is not all they are. Organizational autoethnography may accompany a process of hegemonic self-critique, exploring and questioning the discipline of economics and dominant neo-classical theory, the (global) capitalist political economy, finance, business and management.
