Blogs

here you will find all the interesting topics

In preparation for this summer’s EASA conference (2020), we have prepared blog posts about the topics of our presentations. The blog posts in different ways explore contemporary flows between credit, debt, and various conditions of exchange and usury among/between individuals, markets, states, businesses and communities, which are negotiating global cashlessness. The blog posts address changing household economies, migration landscapes, transactional activities, and lending cycles. They also explore broader horizons involving the provision of financial services and the contingencies of cashless transitions.
