About this product
- DescriptionDuring a tumultuous period when financial speculation began rapidly to outpace industrial production and consumption, Victorian financial journalists commonly explained the instability of finance by criticizing its inherent artificeGCodrawing persistent attention to what they called GCGBPfictitious capital.GC[yen] In a shift that naturalized this artifice, this critique of fictitious capital virtually disappeared by the 1860s, being replaced by tions of fickle investor psychology and mental equilibrium encapsulated in the fascinating metaphor of GCGBPpsychic ecomy.GC[yen] In close rhetorical readings of financial journalism, political ecomy, and the works of Dickens, Eliot, and Trollope, Kornbluh examines the psychological framing of ecomics, one of the nineteenth centuryGCOs most enduring legacies, reminding us that the current dominant paradigm for understanding financial crisis has a history of its own. She shows how vels illuminate this displacement and ironize ideological metaphors linking psychology and ecomics, thus demonstrating literatureGCOs unique facility for evaluating ideas in process. Inheritors of this velistic project, Marx and Freud each advance a critique of psychic ecomy that refuses to naturalize capitalism. This work, published as part of a program providing publication assistance, received financial support from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and FACE (French American Cultural Exchange).
