Financialisation: the keyword of the era



LIANG Guangyan    


Someone said the basic backdrop for the changes in the world today is globalization. Globalization, however, has been accompanied by financialisation, and both are intertwined and synergistic. For many social, economic and political changes with significance in the world today, financialisation is the most important context, because it is the most influential process and dynamics in the world. Therefore, it should be regarded as an important theme for social sciences in China. The contributions collected in the special issue of ISSJ (Chinese Edition) are introductions to the newest studies of the topic abroad.
