Moments of Monetary Politics
My project aims to recover an understanding of money as a political institution. I do so by developing a narrative of five moments of monetary politics and their reflections in political philosophy that range from ancient Athens to the present by way of the British suspension period of 1797–1821, the democratic challenges of the interwar years, and the disjuncture between monetary politics and political theory since the 1970s.
