By Thomas Marois

 

Monday 29 Oct 2012
17:00 – 18:30

Room 4421

SOAS Main Building, London

 

‘Financialization is as financialization does. It is a mix of the universal characteristics of finance within capitalism, its contemporary powerful hold over, even defining feature of, the neoliberal age, and the myriad of specific global markets and countries into which it has penetrated. In a stunning work of comparative political economy, Marois brilliantly weaves together these aspects of finance drawing on both innovative theoretical insights and primary case study evidence from Turkey and Mexico to furnish what will become a classic and original contribution to the understanding of financialization in the developing world, highlighting both the role of the state in the era of putatively free markets and the possibility, indeed, necessity of alternatives.’ – Ben Fine, SOAS, University of London, UK

Event sponsored by SOAS Development Studies, Neoliberalism, Globalisation, and States Research Cluster and the London International Development Centre
