Finanzen, Spiel, Spekulation

Part of the Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft book series (WUG)


Eine Hauptachse politischen Konflikts und politischer Debatten im Umfeld moderner Wertpapiermärkte betrifft deren Ähnlichkeit zum Glücksspiel und die auf ihnen anscheinend stattfindende Erzeugung von Reichtum unabhängig von Produktion und harter Arbeit. Im 19. Jahrhundert zog man in verbreiteten Kritiken und politischen Debatten Parallelen zwischen Spekulation in landwirtschaftlichen Wertpapieren ohne Kenntnis der Landwirtschaft oder auch nur einem Interesse am Erwerb der den Papieren zugrunde liegenden Waren und dem Glücksspiel, wodurch umfassende Dispute betreffs der moralischen Legitimität von Wertpapierhandel und Spekulation entstanden. Das Fehlen einer konzeptionellen Unterscheidung zwischen dem Finanzwesen, dem Glücksspiel und der Spekulation stellte zunehmend die Respektabilität des Handels in Wertpapieren, Aktien und Kreditzertifikaten in Frage.
