`The 2008 financial crisis was a long-tail event, not only in being rare but also in leaving behind a global trail of damage and disruption. Money and Finance After the Crisis provides an indispensable roadmap to the world we now inhabit. Challenging and provocative, it will launch many impassioned conversations.' Mary Poovey, Professor of English, New York University, USA `One of the few benefits of financialisation has been the spur given to interdisciplinary work on money and finance, with geography and sociology in the lead. This collection demonstrates the progress made by bringing together prominent scholars to discuss the aftermath of the crisis of 2007-9. It is a powerful book, handled with confidence by the editors, all authorities in the field.' Costas Lapavitsas, Professor of Economics, SOAS University of London, UK
