Ole Bjerg

Ole Berg is Associate Professor, Copenhagen Business School.

My research interests circle around a diagnosis of contemporary capitalism. I am currently interested in the simple question: What is money? The assumption is that money is not a given and constant phenomenon. Money changes as the structure of capitalism changes. In my current research I am exploring how the radical transformations of banking and financial markets over the last 30-40 years is related to transformations in the very ontology of money. In order to investigate this philosophically, we need to ask, with Heidegger: How is money? Furthermore, our capacity to find ways out of the current crisis hinges on our ability to imagine new kinds of money systems and new kinds of money.
