Beskrivning av projektet
A study on the value of time that focuses on time banking and time management systems in Finland. The research project tries to understand the role of time in the comparison and valuation of phenomena that are commonly regarded inestimable in monetary terms. Why do we use money as a secondary currency alongside our state money; does it accomplish something that money cannot, and what does that, in turn, teach us about money? In the final analysis, the research compares these two Finnish case studies with material from a previous study on time in Fiji to also highlight the very special way in which time is conceived of in Finland.
