What is the difference between money and capital? Is anti-globalization necessarily anti-money? These points and many more are debated and dealt with in "Social Foundations of Markets, Money and Credit". The book examines the case that the capitalist economy is permeated with non- economic relations that flow from the exploitative relations of production. Lapavitsas shows that markets have one aspect in common: money - and critically analyses all aspects of this slippery concept. This book should interest and inform students and researchers not only in economics, but also in sociology and anthropology. Well-informed critics of capitalism should also find it to be useful.
