Real Time in Rear View: Temporal Acts in Markets of Electricity

Real Time in Rear View: Temporal Acts in Markets of Electricity

This paper explores what “real time” means to market actors. My focus is on the traders, market designers, and engineers acting in the electricity markets of the United States. For these actors, real time concerns the time interval in which they can no longer intervene using the instruments available to them. In real-time arrangements, these intervals shrink, as experts can demand cooperation from nonhuman counterparts, like electricity flows, more frequently than before. With this paper, I advance an agenda to think of contemporary capitalism from within the exigencies, affordances, and constraints provided by scientific and technological work cultures.
