Abstract

It is striking that many sociologists observe that their discipline has failed to establish an adequate intellectual framework for the systematic analysis of money. This led Geoffrey Ingham to speak of an ‘Underdevelopment of the sociology of money’ (Ingham in Sociologica 41(10): 3–18 1998).
