This commentary explores the implications of identifying an Antipodean economic geography distinct from an apparent Anglo-American hegemony. I explore Wray et al.'s (2013) proposal that there is a different kind of 'edginess' to the work produced by those on the underside of the world. Using an example from fieldwork in the highlands of northern Thailand, I suggest that identifying with perspectives of the so-called periphery, and striving to see those perspectives as, in fact, central is a crucial part of critical knowledge production.
