About the Author

RANDY MARTIN is Professor of Art and Public Policy and Associate Dean of Faculty and Interdisciplinary Programs at New York University. He is the author and editor of seven books, including, most recently, On Your Marx: Rethinking Socialism and the Left.


"By 'financialization,' Martin refers to the influence of financial calculations and judgments, and his valuable starting point is that financialization, having fundamentally altered American business over the past four decades, is well on its way to doing the same to other areas of U.S. life...His themes are superb. Martin shows how economic change operates as much at the level of lived experience as it does at the level of ideology and his arguments should interest anyone concerned with the impact of financialization on recent art and criticism." --Chris Newfield, Dept. of English, University of California, Santa Barbara "[T]his is an important book which deserves to be widely read." --The Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare "[Randy Martin] must be applauded for his many courageous forays into the literature of financial self-management, and for the often entertainingly grotesque examples he has brought back from those expeditions." --Science and Society
