The Time of Money investigates how the expansion of finance has led to a distinctive social world that demands a speculative stance towards life as a whole.
Lisa Adkins is Head of the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Sydney and the author of The Post-Fordist Sexual Contract (2016).
Ivan Ascher:"As you open this book, you will find that its pages unfold on many levels. On one level, The Time of Money tells a gripping story about money and its place in today's Anglo-American capitalism. On another level, it is also a book about time itself and the multiple temporalities of our financialized lives. But perhaps most significantly, it is a sustained and compelling analysis of the logic of speculation that subtends so much of contemporary capitalism, one that is bound to compel the interest of readers across disciplines. Adkins's book also has the merit of attending to the distinctly political and gendered dimensions of financialization, which is but one of its many virtues."
Silvia Federici:"As more women worldwide fall under the sway of monetary relations, the impact of 'financialization' on their lives has become an increasingly urgent question. A major contribution to this discussion, The Time of Money advances the development of a feminist perspective on finance as a force that is shaping women's social condition even as it shapes the economy."
Jane Elliot:"The Time of Money offers a powerful account of the damage created by the time of money, not least by making visible the emerging temporal experiences we miss when we limit our attention to the passing of the old."
