Description - Value of Money by Catherine Cowley

It is commonly observed that economic factors are pivotal in driving globalisation forward. A globalised economy is far more advanced than a globalised politics. However, if we are to fully understand what is happening, that assumption needs to be refined. This book argues that economic factors are themselves driven: they are the working out of underlying phenomena. Of these, the most pervasive and influential is money. This is not only money in the sense of the finance sector; it is also money in and of itself, the symbolic properties which money possesses. Crucially, this book takes both disciplines seriously, as equal conversation partners, and does not seek to use one approach to define the other as automatically inadequate.
