Home » Financialization: its manifestations, implications and causes

What is the research programme about?  This research programme improves our understanding of financialization. Markets, and in particular financial markets, play an increasing role in society, in different countries including Canada. The research programme is original in that it uses an interdisciplinary approach to explore how financialization comes about, how it manifests itself, and what it implies (e.g., for corporations, for regulators, for society).

What will the research programme achieve? Results from this research programme contribute to current research on markets and on financial markets, which often takes an approach steeped in economics that sidesteps questions of ethics, morality and power. In contrast, this research programme relies not just on economics, but also on sociology and philosophy to develop our understanding of financialization.
