Most of us think of money in the abstract, as money operating in the financial market. Singh approaches money as a social phenomenon, arguing that it is qualitatively different in marriage, family businesses and banking. Singh focuses on money in marriage: money in the domestic sphere rather than the public sphere of market money. She shows how marriage money reflects the marriage relationship: how the growth of the joint account reflects the sharing and pooling of money, while at the same time masking questions about power and dependence. She also shows how developments in banking technology have changed the way couples manage their money.
