About this title:

Synopsis: Making Money examines the interrelation between problem gambling, drug addiction and shopaholism on the one hand and contemporary capitalism on the other. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from neurobiological research to Marx's theory of surplus value and from Andersen's tale of "The Princess and the Pea" to interviews with drug addicts, the author dissects three key components of modern capitalism—money, the body and the commodity—in order to establish that the gambler, the drug addict and the shopaholic are, in the end, both a post-ideological avant-garde and a destitute waste-product of capitalism.

About the Author: Ole Bjerg is a Danish sociologist, Associate Professor at the Copenhagen Business School, who has published extensively on addiction, ethics and capitalism.

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. What is money? Where does it come from? Who makes our money today? And how can we understand the current state of our economy as a crisis of money itself? In "Making Money, " Ole Bjerg turns these questions into a matter of philosophical rather than economic analysis. Using the thinking of Slavoj iek, while still engaging with mainstream economic literature, the book provides a genuinely philosophical theory of money. This theory is unfolded in reflections on the nature of monetary phenomenon such as financial markets, banks, debt, credit, derivatives, gold, risk, value, price, interests, and arbitrage. The analysis of money is put into an historical context by suggesting that the current financial turbulence and debt crisis are symptoms that we live in the age of post-credit capitalism. By bridging the fields of economics and contemporary philosophy, Bjerg's work engages in a productive form of intellectual arbitrage. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781781682661
