About Luca Fantacci

Dr Luca Fantacci teaches international economics and the history of financial crises at Bocconi University in Milan. His research focuses on the history of financial systems and of economic thought. Inspired by Keynes’s ideas, Fantacci is working on clearing schemes, both at European and at local level, aimed at facilitating what the crisis has shown to be systemically obstructed: the payment of debts and the circulation of money. He is the co-editor of Money and Calculation (Palgrave  2010) and the author, together with Massimo Amato, of The End of Finance (Polity 2011) and Saving the Market from Capitalism (forthcoming Polity 2014).
