Book review: Liquidated: an ethnography of Wall Street

A book review that I have written for the Journal of Economic Geography is now available on Advanced Access. This ethnography of Wall Street investment banks by anthropologist Karen Ho is a successful attempt at puncturing the aura of Wall Street superiority, revealing its fragilities, contradictions and the often devastating impacts of their corporate cultures and collective actions not only on the financial workers and financial markets, but also the rest of corporate America.
