New book: Making Money

Ole Bjerg, Associate Professor at CBS, gives a philosophical analysis of money in his new book.


We spend money every day. But the fundamental nature of money remains for the most part taken for granted.

What is money? Where does it come from? Who makes it?

In the new book Making Money, Ole Bjerg, Associate Professor at CBS turns these questions into a matter of philosophical rather than an economic analysis.

The analysis of money is put into an historical context, suggesting that the current financial turbulence and debt crisis are evidence that we live in the age of post-credit capitalism.

The book provides a radical new way of looking at the mysterious stuff we normally buy things with.

Making Money – The Philosophy of Crisis Capitalism by Ole Bjerg, published in April 2014 by Verso Books, 256 pages.
