Keith Hart and His Memory Bank.
In this book, the focus is the Internet, which Keith Hart agrees holds the potential for a re-personalisation of economic relations. In this world, new means of exchange could be harnessed to the ends of a truer economic democracy. Money is the problem, but it is also the solution.
The author offers a new view on the interaction between money, capitalism, and culture - now, in the future, and throughout history. This insightful new book will challenge established views from all quarters of economic, political and social thought.
The book is about money itself - especially now that the exchange of objects through money and the exchange of meanings through language are converging into a single network of communications. Money is becoming information and information is becoming money. In this world Hart reveals how new means of exchange can be harnessed to build a better future.
