In this lecture, Professor Adkins investigates the role of resources, including money, in analyses of contemporary economic crisis, especially in feminist analyses. She calls for feminist theory to rethink redistributive justice in the light of material transformations to the capacities of money and asks the questions: What can money do? Can it be put to work to address deepening forms of social and economic inequality?
