Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York Cambridge University Press 2018Description: xvi, 302p. With index.ISBN: 9781107189515.Subject(s): Capital movements | Sovereign nations | Mobile capitalDDC classification: 332.041 Summary: During the recent financial crisis, the conflict between sovereign states and banks over who controls the creation of money was thrown into sharp relief. This collection investigates the relationship between states and banks, arguing that conflicts between the two over control of money produces critical junctures. Drawing on Max Weber's concept of 'mobile capital', the book examines the mobility of capital networks in contexts of funding warfare, global bubbles and dangerous instability disengaged from social-economic activity. It proposes that mobile capital is a primary feature of capitalism and nation states, and furthermore, argues that the perennial, hierarchical struggles between states and global banks is intrinsic to capitalism. Featuring authors writing from an impressively diverse range of academic backgrounds (including sociology, geography, economics and politics), Critical Junctures in Mobile Capital presents a variety of analyses using current or past examples from different countries, federations, and of differing forms of mobile capital. https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/critical-junctures-in-mobile-capital/6E7CC12D339953FFB4194B62BCA9E76D#fndtn-information
