Langley, P. (2020) 'The financialization of life.', in The Routledge international handbook of financialization. Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge.
The purpose of this chapter is to elaborate upon financialization research that draws on the post-structural theorizations of contemporary power relations provided by Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze. The intertwined theoretical projects of Foucault and Deleuze would perhaps seem an unlikely source of inspiration for understanding financialization. Neither theorist directly and consistently addressed questions of money and finance, nor could their writings several decades ago foretell the present significance of financialization processes. Nonetheless, Foucault and Deleuze feature widely across academic disciplines in critical accounts of financial markets and analyses of financialization.
