Marxist Monetary Theory: Collected Papers

Costas Lapavitsas


A pathway to Marxist monetary theory, through the papers of one of the field’s pre-eminent scholars.

This essential volume collects the papers of Costas Lapavistas, one of the first political economists to notice the ascendancy of money and finance as dominant features of contemporary capitalism. These ground breaking papers range far and wide, covering markets and money, finance and the enterprise, power and money, the financialisation of capitalism, finance and profit, and even the subject of money as art.

Remaining remarkably coherent despite the breadth, this collection is a pathway to Marxist monetary theory that offers a resolutely Marxist perspective on contemporary capitalism that remains conversant with the history of political economy, sensitive to mainstream economic theory, and fully aware of the empirical reality of finacialisation.
