In this article I review Jamie Peck and Nik Theodore’s call to engage with the ‘varieties of capitalism’ approach to heterodox political economy through a ‘variegated capitalism’ approach, rooted in economic geography. I argue in favor of this strategy, but argue specifically that this approach may be most effectively implemented through the study of financial geographies of the firm, as a primary component of a multipronged effort. The goal of this article is to spur debate to develop a variegated-capitalism approach and to focus the attention of economic geography to better contribute to broader macro-institutional debates in heterodox political economy.
