Money-Go-Rounds

The Importance of ROSCAs for Women

Shirley Ardener (Redaktør) ; Sandra Burman (Redaktør)

«The book was like a breath of fresh air because it is all about keeping the art and science of lending money very simple ... not only relevant reading for the general public and those who are involved in banking, but for high flyers who have lost or are losing money in the rarefied atmosphere of derivatives, it is definitely a reality check. - Journal of African Economies»

This volume of case studies examines ROSCAs on a worldwide basis, and should be of interest to anyone studying or concerned with anthropology, economics, women's issues and especially the welfare of the less developed countries and immigrant communities in "the West". Les mer
