In this volume Kenneth O. Doyle provides a conceptual framework for understanding the social meanings of money and property, and the psychological, cultural, economic, and political variables which contribute to these meanings. The author advances the concept of money as talisman, by which individuals protect themselves from their individual fears: of incompetence, abandonment, disorganization and constraint - to mention but a few.
