The Making of Homo Financius and Neoliberal Morality Oleg Komlik

In their paper Maman and Rosenhek made an insightful contribution in shedding light on how the state agencies, institutional actors and mechanisms concoct the neoliberal morality and conduct the moralization of the economic field within particular macro-institutional context. This important research direction should be amplified more in our field. One thing is certain: in (neoliberal) capitalism moral sentiments play a key role in the extraction of economic value.

Since we already live in the wonderful world of MMT and fiat money, why the misrepresentation that the risks involved or that "financialization" are the result of "capitalism"? I note the words "fiat" and "Keynes" do not appear. A typical bunch of statist garbage.
