|Abstract:||In the context of a Dutch market-oriented health care reform, this article investigates the role of two powerful, yet little examined actors in the field of hearing disability: multinational corporations and technology. Based on a notion of “co-production,” the article develops an explanation of the new Dutch system for hearing aid distribution resulting from the interplay between new hearing technologies and an emerging corporate discourse on disability. The results point to technology as a potentially important site for democratic intervention.|
