Abstract


A one country case study using a historical-institutional balance sheet approach provides a unique vantage point on financialization. By clarifying conceptual distinctions between assets and liabilities in households and banks and representing historical financial data in disaggregated forms, Kurt Mettenheim and Olivier Butzbach offer a significant critical genealogy of the production of money and value in the US.
