What springs to mind is the chapter in Global Assemblages by Annelise Riles and Hirokazu Miyazaki. They outline how 'failure' is operationalised in financial markets vis a vis anthropology. Their point (I think!) is that failure needs to be sometimes seen as an end-point and engaged with as such, rather than a gateway to anthropological knowledge on complexity, open-endedness, and inderminancy. It's a challenging idea.
