    THE LAWRENCE BADASH MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES: SCIENCE, FREEDOM, AND THE COLD WAR: A POLITICAL HISTORY OF APOLITICAL SCIENCE

Mobilizing MMT, Ferguson critiques exhausted dialectical oppositions between money and art and contends that monetary abstraction, rather than representing a private, finite, and alienating technology, is instead a public and fundamentally unlimited medium that harbors still unrealized powers for inclusion and cultivation.
