    schema:reviewBody ""In Money Matters: Economics and the German Cultural Imagination, 1770-1850, Richard Gray investigates the discourses of aesthetics and philosophy alongside economic thought, arguing that their domains are not mutually exclusive. The transition from an agrarian or proto-industrial economy to a capitalist industrial economy, which was paralleled by a shift from the exchange of specie to the use of paper currencies, occurred simultaneously with an efflorescence of German-language literature and philosophy. Based on close readings of canonical literary and philosophical texts, Gray explores how this confluence led to a rich cross-fertilization between economic and literary thought in Germany during this period."--Jacket." ;
