Hidden Interests In Credit And Finance (eBook)
Power, Ethics, And Social Capital Across The Last Millennium
de James B. Greenberg e Thomas K. Park
Sobre o livro
In this book, Park and Greenberg take an anthropological approach to the roots of Western finance and credit in ancient societies, covering a period of approximately five thousand years from early Mesopotamia to eleventh-century Islam. They reveal that credit is not just an economic transaction but a social relationship and a technology of power.
