About this book

Introduction

This book gathers several important texts and offers a general overview of the institutionalist approach to money developed in France since the 1980s.These texts highlight the specificities of the French monetary approaches and display their main contributions to the understanding of monetary phenomena - not just in our developed market economies, but also in other societies. By bringing these works to an English-speaking audience for the first time, this book provides a much needed and valuable direct insight to these rich texts, and contributes to related approaches such as post-Keynesian economics and neo-chartalist approaches to money. 

This book highlights the need for a global vision of money and a clearer link between money and political spheres. It will appeal to students and researchers across various disciplines including but not limited to economics, anthropology, sociology, history and philosophy.
