Globalization and Money explores how men and women, particularly the poor and the unbanked in the global South, use money in ways that empower themselves and their families. Supriya Singh argues that money as a medium of relationships across cultures is a central component of globalization. The author deftly weaves theory and individual stories to show how money is emblematic of interconnected markets, the half of the world that is unbanked, and gender disparities. She illustrates how many of the most exciting changes in harnessing peopleas savings; widening credit and insurance; and lowering the cost of technologies, payments and money transfers are taking place in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Demonstrating how strategies to help the poor and marginalized have diffused worldwide, Singh connects the personal and the global in an important rethinking of the contours of money in an international context.Tonny K.
