Gendering the Crisis
The Afterword analyzes novel ways in which gender and finance were interwoven in political practices of representing the global financial crisis (GFC) and in the search for new stabilities. In her analysis of sexualized imaginations of the GFC, de Goede turns to popular films—The Wolf of Wall Street and The Inside Job—and combines them with the focus on obscure financial instrument such as ABACUS. She finds, along with many other authors in this volume, that in the aftermath of the GFC, gender is back—and with a vengeance. But de Goede also warns against easy refoundations of gender and values that scandals might have encouraged: instead, staying attuned to the complex politics of responsibility and to the critical voices both within and outside the financial industry she creates a way of seeing beyond the impoverished field of policy options and of thinking ethically about the global political economy.
