Viviana A. Zelizer — 2022 Markets & Society Conference Keynote

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we'll hear a keynote from the 2022 Markets & Society conference given by Viviana A. Zelizer, the Lloyd Cotsen ’50 Professor of Sociology at Princeton University. In her lecture, Zelizer discusses the social developments concerning the world of money during the COVID-19 pandemic. She begins by identifying three pandemic-era, money puzzles: the surge in donated money, the resilience of remittance money, and the gender of household money. Zelizer uses her pandemic-inspired insights to make a case for the power of sociological answers to these puzzles, focusing on money’s multiple meanings rather than its multiple material forms.
