Handbook on the Geographies of Money and Finance

About the eBook

Developments in recent decades have led to money and finance assuming unprecedented influence over almost every aspect of economic and social life. Making the case for a geography of money, this multidisciplinary Handbook argues it is necessary to think spatially about the constitution and expressions of money and financial systems in the wake of the 2007–-2008 Global Financial Crisis.<P><P>High-quality, research-based contributions from leading international scholars illustrate how the operation and regulation of monetary and financial systems both shape and are shaped by local, national and global developments. Examining four key dimensions of this geography, they consider the different spaces of monetary relations and instabilities, how money and finance contribute to geographically uneven economic development, the regulatory spaces of money, and the emergence of alternative forms and circuits of finance outside the established banking system. <P>Timely and discerning, this book will be of particular importance to geographers, political scientists, sociologists, economists and planners. It will also be of great interest to all those concerned with how money shapes and reshapes socio-economic space, as well as how it conditions local and regional development.<P>Contributors: M.B.
