Nowadays the boundaries between “here” and “there” (Geertz 1988) are, however, often blurred. 12 Not only do pensions at times emerge as a hot topic in the media and a subject much debated among politicians in Sweden, with the field in some ways being constantly present and with many of the field sites within commuting distance from my home, I sometimes bumped into informants outside the frame of the field. I have taken the bus from a meeting together with a key informant and noticed how the topic of conversation gradually shifted from pensions to private issues.

I conducted discourse analysis, as developed by Norman Fairclough (1992, 1993, 2003), of the public information published by the PPM.
