Virtue, Fortune, and Faith

A Genealogy of Finance

Marieke De Goede - Collection Political Science/Cultural History/Finance

236 pages, parution le 31/05/2005


"This is a remarkable, indispensable book. It takes the burgeoning interdisciplinary study of finance to a new plane by concentrating on the moral dimension of money."
Nigel Thrift, University of Oxford

Less than two centuries ago finance-today viewed as the center of economic necessity and epitome of scientific respectability-stood condemned as disreputable fraud. How this change in status came about, and what it reveals about the nature of finance, js the story told in Virtue, Fortune, and Faith. A unique cultural history of modern financial markets from the early eighteenth century to the present day, the book offers a genealogical reading of the historical insecurities, debates, and controversies that had to be purged from nascent credit practices in order to produce the image of today's coherent and (largely) rational global financial sphere.

Marieke de Goede discusses moral, religious, and political transformations that have slowly naturalized the domain of finance. Using a deft integration of feminist and poststructuralist approaches, her book demonstrates that finance is profoundly cultural and politically contigent. In an era when financial practices are pronounced too specialized for broad-based public, democratic debate, Virtue, Fortune and Faith questions assumptions about international finance's unchallenged position and effectively exposes its ambiguous scientific authority.
