The Stock Exchange Modality

(p.1) Introduction The Stock Exchange Modality
Anthropologists in the Stock Exchange

Marc Flandreau

University of Chicago Press

This chapter reviews the previous literature on the relation between anthropology and imperialism. It argues that it has focused on anthropological science as embedded in colonial bureaucracies. It claims that “informal empire” and financial expansion beyond bureaucracies and large-scale chartered companies generated an original form of knowledge, which I call the stock exchange modality.

Keywords:   informal empire, colonial knowledge modalities, financial market
