Social Meaning of Money by Viviana A. Zelizer

Book Description

A distinguished social scientist shows what money really does for us--and to us. The book describes how people have invented their own forms of currency, earmarking money in ways that baffle market theorists, incorporating funds into webs of friendship and family relations, and otherwise differentiating the process by which spending and saving takes place.

Purchase of Intimacy by Viviana A. Zelizer Purchase of Intimacy, Paperback (March 2007)

In their personal lives, people consider it essential to separate economics and intimacy. Challenging this view, this book shows how we use economic activity to create, maintain, and renegotiate important ties, especially intimate ties, to others, thus opening a window on the inner workings of the economic processes that pervade our private lives.
