This paper contrasts the economics and the management discourse paradigms to identify the purposes these discourses serve in sustaining and reproducing capitalist order The paper begins with an identification of the major characteristics of capitalist order Section 2 and 3 compare and contrast economics and management discourses respectively on the basis of the role they are designed to play in legitimizing and operationalizing capitalist order The concluding section argues that their roles vary in efficacy. Both economics and management provide incomplete justificatory and reformative proposals but this is because capitalism is an inherently conflictive social order always threatened by implosion. Economics and management discourse have often evolved in respect to capitalist systematic crises.
