Content:
It is commonplace to say that criminals pay their debt to society by spending time in prison, but what is a "debt to society" How is crime understood as a debt How has time become the equivalent for crime And how does criminal debt relate to the kind of debt held by consumers and university students In Debt to Society, Miranda Joseph explores modes of accounting as they are used to create, sustain, or transform social relations. Envisioning accounting broadly to include financial accounting, managerial accounting of costs and performance, and the calculation of "debts to society" owed by criminals, Joseph argues that accounting technologies have a powerful effect on social dynamics by attributing credits and debts.
