FLYER

Virgin Capital: Race, Gender, and Financialization in the US Virgin Islands (SUNY Press, 2021) examines the cultural impact and historical significance of the Economic Development Commission (EDC) in the United States Virgin Islands, a tax holiday scheme. Drawing on fieldwork conducted during the boom years leading up to the 2008–2009 financial crisis, Virgin Capital provides ethnographic insight into the continuing relations of coloniality at work in the quintessentially “modern” industry of financial services and neoliberal “development” regimes, with their grounding in hierarchies of race, gender, class, and geopolitical positioning.
