This article develops an empirically rich and geographically sympathetic account of the lived experiences of financialisation and its impacts on individuals and households within rural England. The study adopts a financial ecologies approach to demonstrate how the contemporary landscape of both mainstream finance and alternative-and-diverse economic networks are geographically variegated; creating distinct spaces of financial inclusion and exclusion. It examines the everyday engagement of 17 rural households with financial services to argue that financial subjects inhabit multiple subject positions within a financial ecology in ways that conform, diverge and subvert neoliberal versions of the responsible, financially self-disciplined individual.
