What is money? Where does it come from? Who makes our money today? And how can we understand the current state of our economy as a crisis of money itself? In "Making Money, " Ole Bjerg turns these questions into a matter of philosophical rather than economic analysis. Using the thinking of Slavoj iek, while still engaging with mainstream economic literature, the book provides a genuinely philosophical theory of money. This theory is unfolded in reflections on the nature of monetary phenomenon such as financial markets, banks, debt, credit, derivatives, gold, risk, value, price, interests, and arbitrage. The analysis of money is put into an historical context by suggesting that the current financial turbulence and debt crisis are symptoms that we live in the age of post-credit capitalism. By bridging the fields of economics and contemporary philosophy, Bjerg's work engages in a productive form of intellectual arbitrage.
