about this item

`The 2008 financial crisis was a long-tail event, not only in being rare but also in leaving behind a global trail of damage and disruption. Money and Finance After the Crisis provides an indispensable roadmap to the world we now inhabit. Challenging and provocative, it will launch many impassioned conversations'

Mary Poovey, Professor of English, New York University, USA

`One of the few benefits of financialisation has been the spur given to interdisciplinary work on money and finance, with geography and sociology in the lead. This collection demonstrates the progress made by bringing together prominent scholars to discuss the aftermath of the crisis of 2007--9. It is a powerful book, handled with confidence by the editors, all authorities in the field'

Costas Lapavitsas, Professor of Economics, SOAS University of London, UK

Money and Finance After the Crisis provides a critical multidisciplinary and multiscalar perspective on the post-crisis world of finance in all its complexity, dynamism and unpredictability. The contributions illuminate the diversity of ways in which money and finance continue to shape global political economy and society

Written in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis of 2007--2009, the chapters highlight the significance of thinking about money and finance geographically by following the trail of the crisis and its aftermath through distinctive and interlinked spaces, ranging across the global financial centres of New York and London, the surplus-generating economies of Asia and the Middle East, and the ordinary households whose labours underlie the investments, debts, and speculations of society's collective and individual fortunes

From the realms of orthodox finance capital to biodiversity conservation, the chapters explore proliferating forms and spaces of financial power and a broad range of contemporary social formations, including the ways in which modern debt-driven financial markets shape and are shaped by, for example, the `War on Terror', neoliberalizing China, and racialized inequality in post-Apartheid South Africa. Collectively, the contributions show there is neither a universal experience of the post-crisis world, nor a singular `correct' analysis
