We are delighted to announce the launch of a new journal Finance and Space.
Finance & Space is a pioneering interdisciplinary journal based on the belief that we need to change the way we look at finance. Finance is typically seen as a technical and arcane subject best left to economic experts and finance professionals; such a narrow technocratic view has been damaging to society and the environment. At Finance & Society we see finance as a broader system of human-environment relationships, in which people interact with and experience each other and their environment and create systems of value through the medium of money. To understand finance broadly defined, geography along with other social sciences and humanities are essential, in addition to economics.
To advance research and debates on finance and contribute to a vision of finance in which people and the environment matter, Finance & Space publishes cutting-edge empirical and theoretical articles, but also topical commentaries by scholars and finance practitioners. In addition, to promote creative thinking about finance, we publish maps, graphs, artwork, and other images devoted to finance and space.
The Editor in Chief, Dariusz Wójcik explains:
After 13 years of close collaboration between the Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo and its predecessors) and the Regional Studies Association, we are delighted to bring to life the new journal Finance & Space. Our ambition is to change the way people see and understand finance and contribute to a vision of finance in which people and the environment matter.
