Money, a handbook, by Paul Jorion[Reading report] by Olivier Torrente

2010-10-23

Olivier Torrente was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2010.

Using Aristotle' s interpretation of price formation and economics as a struggle between different social classes, Paul Jorion presents an ambitious story of money in the Western world. He announces the end of capitalism and proposes several paths in order to go beyond the era of money domination and the savage and spontaneous actions of the unregulated economy.
