Anthropologists in the Stock Exchange

The conclusion returns to the central themes of the book – and to the questions opened in the introduction. By reviewing the book’s contribution, it emphasizes the advantages of an approach that does integrate the study of the history of science to the history of finance. Because the social sciences are deeply involved in processes of valuation they are in fact at the root of any process of securitization. The chapter concludes that the “stock exchange modality” expounded in the book could serve as a useful starting point to understand imperialism, old and new.

Keywords:   stock exchange modality, securitization, techniques of globalization, social editing, trust, white collar crime, white collar criminality
