Short Description: 
Money at Work

Host Tessie Word speaks with economic sociologist Kevin Delaney about his book Money at Work: On the Job with Priests, Poker Players, and Hedge Fund Traders. Delaney is  interested in complex social and political issues that have a central economic component. They'll talk about how people in particular professions that have money as a central feature of their jobs (like hedge fund traders, fund raisers, debt counselors, poker players and religious clergy) learn to think about money within their professional training and day-to-day work lives.

Delaney is Professor of Sociology at Temple University. His previous books are:  Public Dollars, Private Stadiums: The Battle over Building Sports Stadiums (Rutgers Univ. Press, 2003) and Strategic Bankruptcy: How Corporations and Creditors Use Chapter 11 to Their Advantage (Univ. of California Press, 1992; 1999)
