Christianity and the New Spirit of Capitalism

Kathryn Tanner

Yale University Press

This chapter explores how present and future are collapsed in the evaluation of assets on secondary financial markets such as stock exchanges, and the way efforts are made, by way of derivatives and other tactics typical of finance-dominated capitalism, to limit the potentially disturbing character of an unpredictable future in circumstances of enormous potential volatility. The chapter establishes how Christianity, to the contrary, allows for a future radically different from the present that is not simply compensatory of the present’s failings.
