“Dinero y sentimientos” de Marion Fourcade traducido en Revista Apuntes

[Tomamos prestada la siguiente nota de un comentario de Daniel Fridman en redes sociales] 

“Entre otros artículos de este número de Apuntes, quiero destacar la traducción del artículo de Marion Fourcade sobre valuación de las catástrofes naturales en Francia y USA. Para los hispanohablantes que les interesa la sociología económica, valuación, dinero, y otros temas que el artículo toca, no solamente es un artículo central, sino un ejemplo de excelente investigación y análisis en sociología en general. Léanlo y úsenlo en sus clases!”

Valor Economico: the search for value in economic reporting in Brazil

Valor Economico is currently the leading economic journal in Brazil. Despite it’s being relatively new (it was created in 2000), it has quickly become the top venue for specialised economic discussion. Inspired by the Financial Times, Valor aims to produce pluralistic, well-informed, analytical reporting on the economy, and the social and political issues that surround business.
