The sovereignty impulse tends toward drawing firm boundaries around the self, unambiguously specifying individual and collective identities, privileging and rationalizing aspects of a homogeneous subjectivity that is eligible for memberships and recognition, and constituting forms of nonidentical and ineligible otherness; and specifying and bounding both the spaces in which subjects achieve eligibility and those in which the collective as a whole has dominion.
In contrast, the exchange impulse encourages flows and thus (often) the relaxation of specifications of eligible subjectivities and territorial boundaries. The opposition between flows of exchange and the inhibitions of sovereignty is oriented around issues of selfhood and location and consequently involves an emphasis either on ownership and the maintenance of authority and control or on reciprocity, substitutability, and the relaxation of control in order to produce expanded domains in which things can circulate.
