Money/Space: Geographies of Monetary Transformation (International Library of Sociology)

Добавить в корзину
Bringing together in one volume the most important writings of Andrew Leyshon and Nigel Thrift on money and finance, including the unpublished classic "Sexy-Greedy", this collection examines the economic, social and cultural manifestations that make up the multiple vision of money. Since the mid-1980s, attention to the role played by money and finance in the processes of social and economic change has become more pervasive across the social sciences. The documentation of monetary and financial matters reflect growing concern with the "power of money" and the ways in which this power has the force to influence the conduct of social and economic life across a range of geographical scales. Money/Space describes the economy of international money, linking itwith the distribution of social power. It looks at some of the ways in which this world of money, exemplified by finance capital and financial markets, is discursively constituted through particular social-cultural practices. Money, it seems, is the great God of our age. It is also an economy, a sociology, an anthropology and a geography. Linking money with the emergent patterns of global spatial order, this collection examines the restructuring of financial markets in a range of spatial scales: global, national and local.
