Living with Uncertainty in a Financialized World
Explore how speculation has moved beyond financial markets to shape fundamental aspects of our social and political lives in Speculative Communities by Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou. This book delves into the ways that ordinary people are making exceptional decisions, such as political votes, based on the speculative promise of a new, more uncertain future. By examining how social media platforms enable and amplify our volatile wagers, Komporozos-Athanasiou shows how finance has become the model for society writ large. Discover how even our methods of building community have shifted to the speculative realm and how this "connect first, ask questions later" approach is shaping our daily lives.
