Emotional capitalism. It’s a term increasingly used to refer to the impulsive, febrile nature of market economies, but in the last decade many therapists have been using it to describe the shift in how people are perceiving their relationships. Phrases like, “this is not a good deal” or “this is not what I bargained for” and “I have to cut my losses” have entered the intimate relationship lexicon. The market economy, renowned psychotherapist Esther Perel states, has entered the relationship world. And, she points out, the world of emotion has entered the business world too. “We talk about psychological safety in the same breath as we talk about performance reviews,” she says. “We are talking about authenticity and belonging and trust. And yet we rarely define them. Relationship intelligence at work has become foundational.”
