“[The book] truly succeeds as a ‘provocation,’ as a volume of critical interventions on the quickly evolving transformations in global finch and their implications for the indebted marginalised now drawn into their financial web.” • Anthropos
Cashless infrastructures are rapidly increasing, as credit cards, cryptocurrencies, online and mobile money, remittances, demonetization, and digitalization process replace coins and currencies around the world. Who’s Cashing In? explores how different modes of cashlessness impact, transform and challenge the everyday lives and livelihoods of local communities. Drawing from a wide range of ethnographic studies, this volume offers a concise look at how social actors and intermediaries respond to this change in the materiality of money throughout multiple regional contexts.
