This volume treats finance as a social and cultural process, exploring the unseen side of academic discourse and the many obstacles the deeply entrenched elite put in the way of alternative thinking. Opening with a discussion of the role of ideology in the perpetuation of the limited methodological bias of the profession towards markets, the book then examines the more specific effects of such ideological limitations on theoretical and and empirical research in finance. The authors develop alternative ways to examine finance both as a profession and as a field of enquiry. This volume is intended for researchers and practitioners working in finance, as well as those in other social science disciplines whose research relates to finance, culture and society.
