Usages de l'argent et pratiques monétaires
This text aims at surveying the dynamics of works on money developed, since the 1980s, in institutional economics, economic sociology and economic anthropology; and proposing a subjective synthesis of present directions for research. We first take a glance at the field of Francophone and Anglophone works. After having defined the scope of this studied field, we discuss monetary uses through four main subjects: first, the contribution and the limits of the Polanyian approach of modern money; then, the grounds for renewing the analysis by bringing to light the qualities of money, considered a monetary asset. This leads to propose a critical analysis of the economic postulate of monetary fungibility, and to present the basis of what constitutes a socio-economy of monetary conversions. We eventually examine the ambiguous relationships between money and market and, beyond the market, between money and social cohesion in a market society.
