Scandalous Economics

Aida A. Hozić

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the institution of scandal by focusing on the phone-hacking affair in the United Kingdom, which seriously rattled Rupert Murdoch’s media empire in 2011. The chapter addresses two questions: What are the conditions that make scandals propagate? And what role do scandals play in societies in crisis, especially financial crisis? By drawing on Michel Foucault’s analysis of sexuality and sexual scandals in the Victorian age, the chapter underscores the stabilizing effects of scandals on existing power relations and gender hierarchies.

Keywords:   Foucault, sexuality, Rupert Murdoch, sexual scandals, hacking
