A new world is emerging as we forge into the twenty-first century, a world in which mass indebtedness has become a marker of social inclusion. Being indebted, and living in debt, may become the norm in this age of financialized capitalism. The aim of Lena Lavinas’s research is to examine how entitlements are being transformed from rights into assets to serve as collateral.
