For me …

 

MONEY IS not simply a thing but a social process: monetization rather than money as such! It is not only about what money counts and how it compares, but fundamentally about what and who money can be, represent or become!

Therefore I am an

Welcome! I am Jens M. Zickgraf. Dedicated to the fascinating topic of money, moneyness.info is my personal website. I use it as a platform to share my profile and to link some of my general thoughts on money and monetization with bits and pieces of my research in India.

Moneyness is the core theme which motivates my approach. Some of my basic ideas can be found here and here (external link).

It makes me interested in:

  • historical variations and future potentials of money
  • user experience and social aesthetics
  • payment as “technology”, “infrastructure” and “performance”
  • value and “value-add”; moral spheres of value and valuation
  • monetary cultures and pecuniary identities
  • financial landscapes and financial inclusion
  • money in India

Thanks for visting!
