This is a major study of how the 'democratization of finance' in our time has worked to create new identities for savers and borrowers. It challenges us all to think again about how we understand the remaking of present day capitalism. * Karel Williams, Professor of Accounting and Political Economy, University of Manchester *
In a major statement of the new IPE, Paul Langley demonstrates how everyday forms of saving and borrowing produce subject positions and financial identities among everyday actors that are the 'unrecognized' constitutive elements of the global financial order. * Mark Blyth, Associate Professor of Political Science, Johns Hopkins University *
This is an undeniably important and timely book. We are at a moment of significant change and uncertainty within the Anglo-American financial system within which many of us are irrevocably entangled due to our everyday roles as borrowers and/or savers. Langley reveals with skill and insight how we have arrived at this particular financial and political conjuncture and, in doing so, provides an important resource to help determine where we may be headed. * Andrew Leyshon, Professor of Economic Geography, University of Nottingham *
