Series New anthropologies of Europe
Note Includes bibliographical references (p. [185]-197) and index
Contents Imagining utopia, constructing Øresund : from the nation-state to the region -- The arts of "scientific" money : monetary policy as moral policy -- Receipts and deceits : currency regulation, black markets, and borders -- The mark of money : regulating the flow of subjects -- Indebted communities : exiling economic hierarchy to the margins
Note Gustav Peebles takes an anthropological look at two seemingly separate developments in Europe at the turn of the millennium: the rollout of the euro and the building of new transnational regions such as the Oresund Region, envisioned as a melding of Copenhagen, Denmark, with MalmÃ, Sweden. Peebles argues that the drive to create such transnational spaces is inseparable from the drive to create a pan-national currency
