Thinking About Money SOAS poster

The recording is part of the symposium and launch of Marxist Monetary Theory,a collection of papers by Costas Lapavitsas part of the HM book series published by Brill. 

Money and finance are pre-eminent, even dominant, features of contemporary capitalism. Costas Lapavitsas was among the first political economists to notice their ascendancy and devote his research to it. The collected volume ranges far and wide, including papers on markets and money, finance and the enterprise, power and money, the financialisation of capitalism, finance and profit, even money as art.

The symposium was organised by the SOAS Department of Economics, in collaboration with the Department of Development Studies.
